In the old times, before the capital changed from Kyoto to Tokyo, cherry trees were considered a frightful sight. No one thought them a sign of beauty. Without a trace of human life beneath it, a cherry in full bloom becomes a fearful sight.
The fifth instalment of Match & Companys Japanese Photography x Contemporary Literature series.
In Daido Moriyama: Ango, Daido Moriyamas frightening photographs of cherry trees are set to Ango Sakaguchis famous short-story In the Forest, Beneath Cherries in Full Bloom.
The demonic beauty of the cherry blossoms of Moriyama and Sakaguchi turn into a jet-black photobook of bottomless loneliness, emptiness and dangerous seduction.
