Shigeyoshi Ohi describes the experience of standing at the edges of these lakes as an agitating process. Beneath the serene surfaces lie one of mother nature’s greatest force of destruction. Volcano craters fill up rapidly with water when the volcanoes become dormant, resulting in awe-inspiring landscapes. Once harbingers of death, these volcanoes become givers of life, nourishing the surroundings with rich deposits of minerals. However, time and space seem to merge into the dark void, of which Ohi translated into a beautiful body of work.

More of the series can be seen on his portfolio.
