Photographs by Mizuno Katsuhiko
This topic is for purely educational purposes.
In describing his own creations of over 40 years, Kyoto-born photographer Katsuhiko Mizuno has said that nothing in his photos is either purely artificial or purely natural. He always sees someone's hands or glances behind a tree or a rock in the gardens and captures the aura of timeless spirits with his camera. In the old capital of Kyoto even nature unfolds its seasonal cycle in the context of human history.
Japanese culture has been strongly influenced by foreign culture. Japanese gardens experienced a constant transfiguration under foreign influence. However, over the centuries, although in different forms, Japanese gardens maintained some kind of continuity. One of the unique characteristics of the japanese garden is the relationship between man and nature.
