Toshio Enomoto – ‘Sakura’

Toshio Enomoto’s series ‘Sakura’ – “It is my rule to use film in sakura photography. I’ve photographed sakura for nearly thirty years, at dawn or sunset, always in pursuit of that momentary tension between the darkness of the night sky and the bright flowers, but it’s a real challenge. The sakura show different faces every year, and sometimes I wonder how many more chances I’ll get to chase them. The coming of spring always makes me restless.”
