Detail: Sarai Ohira, a Fukuoka-based photographer, wishes for the resuscitation of our planet, pursuing harmony on the earth where human beings shall live peacefully surrounded by beautiful nature.
She has a career of twenty years of garden designing, where photography is an essential part of her profession. While focusing on temples and shrines deep in the forests, Ohira often perceives the existence of Kamurogi and Kamuromi, honorific titles of the primordial god and the goddess in Japanese mythology. From these experiences she came to know that we individuals, as the guardians of the earth, should, in preparation for this role, get balanced by the principles of Yin and Yang, so to speak: light and shade, fire and water, body and mind, and so on. She discovered that when one enjoys photographs that are symmetrically harmonized, the water of every single cell of one’s body gets activated so as to take on the Yin-Yang balance. Thus she found a new possibility for photography, and she names her theory and technique KAMUROGI x KAMUROMI.
