The illusion of time.
The illusion of time. Another part of the study of the connection between the Torii and the natural elements which surround it. The Torii is an iconic japanese structure belonging to Shinto shrines, it’s a gate that represents the passage from the secular world to a sacred one. In this photograph I’ve took advantage of the soft light of a cloudy day and, by capturing the scene after the sunset using a long exposure, I tried to convey a sense of stillness: the boundaries between the water and the sky almost disappear, leaving the Torii and the distant mountains in an undefined space, untied from the flow of time.
