「Himalayas Mountains(ヒマラヤ山脈)」

The last time I experienced deeply sora-iro was during a trip to Ladakh, India.
The majestic Himalayas mountains which appeared before my eyes were absolutely overwhelming, and so was the lack of oxygen.
The sun was so bright that the snow became a single giant reflector.
Within white and blue – within ice and deep blue sky – I was seeing a thousands of colors and it’s this one-of-a-kind experience that made me want to present this series as Fresson prints – a unique coal process invented in France in 1899.
