To "the infinity of the earth" / Patagonia and the Andean mountains

The landscape of the "end of the earth" spread all over the continent of South America is the big rhythm itself that is different from the world we live in. In order to capture even a part of the dynamism and the truth of the earth in the infinite world, taking the image of "the infinity of the earth" as a life work.

Region of the giants, Patagonia

"Patagonia" which was feared as "the region of the giants" during the Age of Discovery is the name of region spreading in Argentina and Chile. In the land where overwhelming scales of nature spread, such as needle-peaks, freezing ice fields, and the Pampa spreading to the horizon, we can feel the drama of life in and around the magnificent natural rhythm.

The blessings of Andean Mountains

The Andean mountains across the continent of South America is a primitive existence that governs all the nature of the continent. "The Altiplano" with an altitude of 4000m, the snow capped mountains, the tropical rain forest, even coastal deserts, all the nature in South America come from the Andean mountains.
