Yokan means premonition in Japanese. I’ve been shooting in nature to follow the traces of my own premonition. The camera caught photographs that showed things differently from what I had seen them. I used to think that a camera takes pictures that would depict reality the way one sees it, but it didn’t. The images showed a non-realistic version of reality. Yokan explores the mystery of nature as captured by my camera.
