Four Seasons of Gardens in Kyoto: Photographs by Katsuhiko Mizuno

『四季の京都の庭園』写真 水野克比古

Japanese culture has been strongly influenced by foreign culture and aesthetics from time to time, such as Chinese Buddhism  in the ancient period, Zen Buddhism in medieval times, Confucian philosophy during the Edo Shogunate, and European modern civilization in the Meiji period. Japanese gardens were not an exception and experienced constant transfiguration under foreign influence. However, over the centuries, although in different forms, Japanese gardens maintained some kind of continuity. One of the unique characteristics of the Japanese garden is the relationship between man and nature.

In describing his own creations of over 40 years, Kyoto-born photographer Katsuhiko Mizuno has said that nothing in his photos is either purely artificial or purely natural. He always sees someone’s hands or glances behind a tree or a rock in the gardens and captures the aura of timeless spirits with his camera. In the old capital of Kyoto even nature unfolds its seasonal cycle in the context of human history.
