Stunning photography of Japan by Takehito Mitayake
Takehido Miyatake is a Japanese photographer who captures fireflies, volcanos and glowing squids in his amazing long-exposure photography. At first, he photographed classical landscapes, but after watching the 2009 eruption of Sakura-jima volcano, Takehido decided to capture the magical lights of Japanese landscapes. Inspired by Japanese poetry and philosophy, he shows how beautiful, rich, but at the same time how fragile Japan really is.
Miyatake’s photography recently won him a Grand Prize at 2014 Nikkei National Geographic Photo Awards. See more of his photos on his website.
