I've been trying to get close image to Suiboku-ga (Japanese ink painting).

One day I tried to change the monochrome photo of the lit up bamboo forest into black/white inverted image, then the black background turned to white space and suddenly appeared a fantastic scene like Suiboku-ga.

These works are made with this method. Reversing black/white results in rebirth of the works. There seems to be an element of yin-yang.
