Italian photographer deeply in love with Japan, I share my photos (in Japanese shashin) and my experiences in Japan. I love Japanese art, culture, literature, music, tradition, food, people, elegance and mostly, beautiful women.
Chabana are the essential, minimalistic traditional Japanese flower arrangements used only for chanoyu, the tea ceremony. While in Japan, I live in Kitakata to my mother in low house, shi is ikebana master and chanoyu master, so I ask her for composition to take many photos, she have many vases and accessories and the important golden screen on the bach ground, is a wodden frame covered with paper and gold like color on it (not real gold) that give an incredible depth to the photos. I prefer natural light coming from a window or the main door, a flower composition is always placed in the entrance room of the house, like this one. The bottle in an old sake jar, very nice, placed on a little laquered wodden table.
