Description Matsushima is a group of islands covered with pine trees, and considered one of the most scenic places in Japan. Seagulls perform spectacular acrobatics, flying alongside tour ferries and catching food thrown overboard from tourists.
Mike Lee CS, Singapore Member Since January 2007 Artist Statement I didn't travel out of my country of birth till I was almost 20, and when I did my trip lasted all of four hours, returning with no photos but a videotape of a R-21 movie, running an errand for a BBS (bulletin board service) mate.
The first time I traveled by plane was on assignment to cover a plane crash. I flew business class, and spent time at press conferences, hospitals, the morgue, and the closed-off airport runway.
Thankfully subsequent trips were more normal, so to speak, and I have photos to show for it. A number of them were exhibited publicly in Singapore, some in sizes as large as a study desk - thanks to print-on-demand technology.
I have lived in Japan for 18 months. This photo-mad nation is where every other photographic artist have a published book. A coffee table book is a nice goal; still I imagine some of you would rather enjoy a fine print hung on the wall.
This is where my imagekind gallery comes in. Enjoy.
