Masuyama, who also recreated works by Caspar David Friedrich, J.M. William Turner and Dutch old masters, impressively demonstrates the artistic possibilities of modern photography. In a time in which the influence of Man causes the destruction of nature, Masuyama shows us its beauty. But his backlit pictures are not mere photographic reproductions of nature, but conceptual interpretations, which the artist assemblesfrom hundreds of photographs.
