cherry trees




I was in Japan during the rise of the 2020 pandemics. It also happened to be the time of Hanami, the celebration of the short-lived cherry blossom, a symbol of the transient & fragile nature of life.

The photos I made there are in dialogue with screenshot of animes & Japanese series, which were popular when I grew up. Many of them were set in a dystopian future and proved to be quite visionary, anticipating major environmental and humanitarian crisis. The people I chose to photograph - their youth, their look & their determination - reminded me of the characters in these tv programs.
