In 2018, I started the “Trace the Earth” project to record nature and people’s activities on the planet under the series title “TRACE”. This series features a style that captures the surroundings of the author’s viewpoint around the axis of a tripod. The large-format film camera is used for detailed TRACE to create a connected landscape. The camera is a recording medium. You can capture a moment that cannot be captured with the naked eye, but you can also express the passage of time in a single work by composing multiple images. The moment is reflected in each of the photos connected to the side, and I am reminded that time has passed in the act of looking over the landscape. Scenery created by photography becomes a furrow of people’s memory, and creators and viewers can share a visual experience.
