Currently on display at the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) in Massachusetts, Japanese photographer Toshio Shibata’s landscape photography is a stark contrast to traditional Japanese-style landscapes, which focuses on natural beauty inherent in scenic views like temples and gardens.
Instead, Shibata finds beauty in infrastructure like bridges and dams, contrasting and balancing the man-made structures against the natural environment they sit in.
PEM’s curator of photography, Philip Prodger said that Shibata’s photography is “infused with deep awareness of humanity’s place in nature. As with all the best landscape photographers, his works cause us to reflect on what it means to live in this world”
