About Hokkaido"Hokkaido is a precious treasure. So, I have found it to be highly intriguing, gently seductive, dangerously wild and hopelessly romantic. Hokkaido has shared with me an immense amount of spectacular subject matter, for which I am highly appreciative and hugely indebted. Firstly, I especially love Hokkaido in the winter months. As a result, the landscape becomes transformed by layers of ice and snow into a stark, white canvas, a graphic sumi-e painting, a visual haiku. So, the reduction of sensory distractions – leafless trees, absence of color, and eerie silences, demands a concentrated and attentive focus – a perfect recipe for serious creative photography. Add hot onsens, cold sake, fresh hoke, and lively karaoke bars – the resulting mixture is absolutely irresistible." -Michael Kenna
