Yuka & The Forest, Lena C. Emery
Limited edition of 500 copies with print.
‘Yuka & The Forest’ marks photographer Lena C. Emery’s second monograph. Within her new book of images, Emery introduces us to the chinju no mori, the sacred forest. We are reminded that cultures like that of Japan, which are deeply embedded in nature, have been able to preserve much of their natural habitat by having fostered an interconnected value system. Within ‘Yuka & The Forest’ we embark on a journey of reflection that leads us through a remote village in rural Japan, high into the midst of a vast landscape. We are prompted to reflect on nature’s profound serenity and as the last pages fall also of its demise at the hand of our own.
