Yuka & The Forest  — by Lena C. Emery

£82 ︎ Add to Cart

‘Yuka & The Forest’ (published in 2018) introduces us to the chinju no mori, the sacred forest. We are reminded that cultures like that of Japan which are deeply embedded in nature, have been able to perserve much of their natural habitat by having fostered an interconnected value system

Within ‘Yuka & The Forest’ we embark on a journey of reflection that leads us through a remote village high into the midst of a vast landscape. We are prompted to contemplate nature’s profound serenity and as the last pages fall also of its demise at the hand of our own 

After having travelled to Tokyo for the first time in 1999, over a decade passed before the German photographer discovered the Japanese countryside and its incredible forest landscape. Since 2015 Emery has returned every year
