Photographer Hidenobu Suzuki has captured the idyllic landscapes of Japan in a remarkably tranquil light. Between the quiet foggy rivers, peaceful rice fields, and twilight at Mt. Fuji, there's something for everyone who's looking for a visually relaxing utopia. "My photographs are like Japanese paintings," Suzuki explains. "Japanese like to express emotions and spiritual feelings through landscape photography. Contemporary theater, art and music stimulate the brain and increase mood. Emotional art heal people and leads the society to harmony. I took a challenge to capture emotions with my camera." This element of spirituality can be detected in each photo, which helps to highlight the beauty of Japan's nature. Suzuki also demonstrates that expressive artwork can serve as a means for finding serenity in both our inner and outer worlds.
