    風景
    Published:
My practice is centred on an understanding of landscape based on the Japanese term fukei, a word that means landscape but is constructed from two characters which individually translate as 'flow' or 'wind', and 'view': drawing the landscape as a flowing view1, in a constant state of flux. This acts in contrast to English word 'landscape' which has its origins in the picture of a scenery; a static representation that is removed from experience.
To create these images I use extended exposure times whilst walking. Using my breath to time the exposures enables me to remain present in the space I am experiencing through the act of walking, the resulting photograph becoming a depiction of this meditation.
