The land of the rising sun is captured beautifully in this Japanese landscape photography series by an amateur photographer.
Hidenobu Suzuki likens his photographs to Japanese paintings and this series of serene images depicts Japan's natural beauty. From settings like Mount Fuji to a glorious sunset, these tranquil portraits show the breathtaking allure that is unique to Japan. Suzuki uses landscape photography to express emotions and spiritual feelings in the hope that "emotional art heals people and leads the society to harmony." The challenge for any photographer lies in capturing emotions through the camera and conveying these emotions through their art.
The photographer uses a modern medium for this series of Japanese landscape photography -- photo app 500px -- which offers a similar service to Instagram but one that is more catered to photographers who are looking to showcase their art to a mass audience.
