Everything in the universe—including human beings—is governed by great natural and universal forces. We receive from the sky, the sea and the land primordial messages, which we might learn to understand by fine-tuning our antennae. I am still at the entrance to this path, and so I have no clear vision or answer to offer; but I feel it an important task for me to record the image before my eyes with no artifice, and to communicate it to the viewer. My belief is that what must be communicated exists beyond the creator’s self. Perhaps, we can only heighten the sensitivity of our own “reception” by embarking on a journey in search of the unseeable. Although nobody knows what vistas await, we need to engage with these sights in a natural state of being.
