In a secluded bamboo grove in northern Japan, I stumbled across an old family homestead. On site were over 200 glass plate negatives dating back to the Taisho era of Japan, showing the construction of the house and the lives of those who lived there for many years. In these images the passage of time is both clearly evident and a blurred line, as we see the house both as a busy family nexus and a quiet companion to nature as it is returns to the earth. Exhibited at Artsite Gallery, Sydney, from May 7th-29th 2016.
