Happy to announce that photographs of mine I took of Ise Jingu Grand Shrine in Ise, Japan have been published in Kyoto Journal magazine issue 92. Titled “Devotion” it features photographs I took, ironically on a rainy day, of the most sacred shrine in Japan that is devoted to the Japanese Sun Goddess Amaterasu.
The photographs accompany the article, ” A Matter of Time – Thirteen Centuries of Constant Renewal” by Kenny Fries.
The beauty of Japanese mythology is that Shinto shrines are rebuilt every 20 years. Such as at Ise, the Shikinen Sengu has been occuring for 1,300 years.
Remarkable eternal return and a real source of connection to the cosmos! Shinto is beautifully connected to nature. No dogma. No karma or suffering. Just dance and enjoy life!
