MIORI INATA Biography

I take pictures to capture a moment of beauty. I like to take photographs of an object as it appears at the moment. I want to preserve a particular moment, a moment that will never happen again in exactly the same way. This idea comes from the Japanese “Chado” (the tea ceremony) - the idea that weather, light, season and time are changing all the time. All things exist by chance, yet I believe that they are connected to each other by inevitable coincidences. Therefore, I appreciate the fact that I can be present at that moment.

My intuition may come from an innate sense of Japanese roots. My training is in oil painting and this also affects my photographs.

I have been living in New York for a number of years and I have been inspired by my exposure to the culture, art and people of the United States. I have also traveled extensively throughout the world expanding my awareness and catching moments of particular light in different settings. Wherever I travel, the world in my photography is very quiet and peaceful. I hope people will love the earth more with my photos of the beauty in the world.
