Half Photography Zine #3 Beneath Crashing Waves from Kyoto

Beneath Crashing Waves


Geometrically minimal gardens, with considered views across meticulously-static raked gravel present a flavour of calm consistent across so many of the famous Zen gardens in Kyoto. Each garden has its own distinctive characteristics, but there's a rigid formula that can cause many to feel alike.


Zuihoin however, a noteworthy sub-temple within Daitokuji, feels very different. Achieving meditative calm as a viewer, sitting alongside such energy rising from the temple's dynamic garden, can be almost challenging. Furthermore surprising, subliminal messages of Christianity and even a buried Madonna statue, are said to lie under deep under the surface; Beneath Crashing Waves.
