Dear Japan is a photography series inspired by traditional Japanese prints and ink blots such as those made by Hiroshige and Hokusai as well as even earlier examples. These old Japanese inkblots have a special contemplation, almost Zen-like quality. Using the tools of modern photography Marjan Krebelj achieves similarly beautiful, meditative results. Each photograph opens up a pathway to an intimate spiritual experience. Almost like Haiku, Krebelj’s photography reads like poetry.
