Miho Kajioka – ‘As It Is’

Miho Kajioka’s series ‘As It Is’  – capturing the passage of time inspired by Japanese aesthetics of the empty space and the concept of fleeting, fragile beauty of the changing seasons.

“These fragments of my life, from various periods and against changing backdrops, are not so different from each other, and the differences that remain aren’t important. Happiness, sadness, beauty and tragedy only exist in our minds. Things are just as they are.”

Miho Kajioka – As It Is

 

In the spring, cherry blossoms,

In the summer the cuckoo,

In autumn the moon, and in

Winter the snow, clear, cold.

Zen monk Dogen
