The graphic gates of the Japanese “ma” — accommodate between them the symbols of the Sun and the Moon, both shining through them at appropriate times. Yet something remains: forever elusive, not directly visible. This is where it seems to me to become similar to the notion of photographic art itself — where, due to the power to convey lifelike visual reproductions, the true meaning of a picture or a piece of art often refers to something not directly seen in the image. The time spent in Akita taught me to forget the obvious — which really is the best outcome an artist could have wished for.
