Memories of Landscape

Every landscape is layered and enfolded with memories starting in ancient times. These memories remain palpable in the landscape. Some memories are passed down from one generation to the next. Some have already been taken by another and lost.Photographers try to capture all such memories.

The landscape, pregnant with memories, always stands reticently. The photographer speaks to and represents these memories as an eloquent interpreter. The narrative thread woven by the resulting images tell us of many things–things that we must cherish and remember and things we need to reexamine straightaway. This dialogue maybe the only way we can repay history.

Fieldwork revives memories of landscapes by engaging local cultures, people, and their accumulated histories. We examine the concepts and processes of photographers Nao Tsuda, who documents singers of Amami Oshima’ s traditional songs, and Elena Tutatchikova, who examines the meaning of travel by walking throughout Shiretoko Peninsula, through their fieldwork.
