Moon viewing 2015 – 月見

It is a Japanese tradition to sit on a balcony and observe the moon reflected in a pool.

I have the privilege to be a guest at an event at  Jikkoin Temple 実光院 at Ohara, Kyoto this coming October 2015.  All performances will be dedicated to one motif – The Moon. 

I have been sitting in my studio’s balcony in dark nights watching the sky.  I was wondering how I could relate from the Mediterranean point of view to the Moon and bring it with me to Kyoto. I began photographing Her in a round mirror.

The moon-mirror left all night to collect dust and rain drops – now meeting the sun as it rises from the East, from Kyoto direction.
