Ogatsu Slate Art Photography
Only One in the world,
Art Photography on Ogatsu Slate
There is no letter on the surface of the actual print work.
This work is printed a picture named “EN-LIGHTENMENT” on the slate of Ogatsu stone of Miyagi in Japan which is a special product of Ogatsu town, Miyagi, Japan.
Ogatsu stone is famous as materials for utensils of “Sho-do” : Japanese and Chinese original calligraphy that people write letters with brush.
This is a very mysterious print, because hundreds of millions of ocean floats make up unique patterns on the surface.
This slate was actually damaged by the 2011 East Japan great earthquake tsunami that struck Ogatsu town on March 11, 2011. So, this is damaged and lacking in horns.
I printed my most best and soulful photograph on January 18, 2013 on this slate.
And one of my supporters bought this piece for 1 million yen (about $ 10,000) in the summer of 2013.
Of course, this is only one artwork in the world.
