YAMAZAKI Hiroshi 山崎 博

In this series of long exposure photographs, maintaining a fixed relationship between the position of the sun, the sakura (cherry tree and cherry blossoms) and the camera throughout the course of a day was the framework; the photographs were shot by moving the camera in step with the motion of the sun. YAMAZAKI’s concept was not to create a film version of conventional images of sakura; rather, he imagined “Freeing the cherry tree from the earth and showing the light of the vast sky with it.” He sought the image of “sakura as the essential principle of the camera straightforwardly captures it.” In Sakura (1990), he used a telescopic lens consisting of four tele-conversion lenses and a zoom lens to photograph sakura with the sun in the background. This series, which began with his 1989 video, has developed further, with Sakura EQUIVALENT (1993) and Sakura EQUIVALENT ON COLOR (1995).
