The photograph was featured on the cover of Toshio Shibata/Quintessence of Japan: About the World, published by the Sprengel Museum, Hannover, Germany. The subject of the work is development projects in Japan leading to the destruction of the natural environment. Since 1983, Toshio Shibata has photographed project sites where concrete is poured down mountain slopes and hillsides. The artist’s elaborate conceptual compositions explore the juxtaposition of the Japanese landscape and man’s imposition on that landscape. Shibata's works transform the landscape into magical, mysterious, and unique visions.
