“Cherry blossoms are so beautiful
that I don’t think I’ve spent as much
time looking at anything else

Facing a sakura tree
my eyes shift
from one petal to another
from one flower to another
until the whole picture is grasped

In ‘SAKURA’
I attempt to visualize
the move of my observing eyes
and crystallise the visual experience
of meditating and wandering upon
the blooming tree

As a result
the images show that
photography captures not only
a specific moment
but also the passing of time’

– Yoshinori Mizutani
