‘Colours of Japan’, Images of the Country through the Seasons
In this exhibition, the former hairdresser turned photographer offered a voyage to Japan through the four seasons.
From 8th October 2018 until 19th January 2019, the Maison de Thé in Paris’ 6th arrondissement hosted the photo exhibition Colours of Japan, put together by photographer Hidenobu Suzuki. The photographs taken by this former hairdresser turned photographer present landscapes that are both sumptuous and ancient.
Hidenobu Suzuki seeks to link photography to Japanese painting. He captures some landscapes using a flash which enables him to accentuate the contrasts in these images, making the colours even more vibrant. In Colours of Japan, Suzuki allowed viewers to discover a poetic, peaceful vision of Japan.
