At the heart of Yakushima
I shot these images on one of the southern Islands of Japan called Yakushima. All images were shot with a Pentax 6x7 medium format camera using Kodak Portra 160 NC. I travelled from one side to the other, going through the magical forest of Mononoke, which inspired Hayaka Miyazaki's masterpiece Princess Mononoke. The forest is ancestral with 3000 year old cedars, making them the oldest in the world. I hope you enjoy these images.
