Taguchi Tomoki is a Japanese artist renowned for his work Yatsuo no tsubaki (1860-1869). It is a book featuring woodblock prints, a popular art form that flourished during the Edo period. In woodblock printing, water-based inks are used to achieve multiple colours in the images. Part of the process uses wood, thus the name. For some time, images produced were mostly monochromatic. However, its popularity evolved into making prints that uses diverse colours.
These analogue photographs are from a solo travel I made in Los Angeles, Arizona, and San Francisco for nearly a month. They remind me of the glorious old days when I was bold and fearless, trustful and optimistic to strangers (still I am).

Its message — while we travel to see the world and to widen our understanding of humanity, travelling also allow us to recognise, discover and inspire a better version of ourselves, of our home.
