VIN OOTA PROFILE
I majored in folklore in an art university .
I practiced river  kayak  for ten years in extreme  conditions.
Through this experience
I come to realized the lows of nature ( humans and nature are one )
My first employment was  editorial designer in new science publishing house.
It  was during this first job that I learned about  “Gaia”  and  “global brain” .
I made many record jackets and book covers.
Later , I worked as a  director in major advertising agency.
I did product  branding and  creative cocept for TVcommercial.
After gaining a lot of experience in the creative industry,
I decided to focus on my own artistic practice as a photographer.
In the beginning I was doing documentary photography of native cultures.
I became interested in island cultures,
because they have preserved the wisdom of their ancestors.
In 2005 I started a new project, called “Naturalism Art”,
which was inspired by my encounters  with native spirits.
I feel that there exist many nature spirits.
There is a spirit in every object,and in all things in nature.
for example there are nature spirits
in the trees,
grass,
stones,
clouds,
breeze…etc.
Our ancestors call this concept  “森羅万象 shinra bansho
“ Everything on the earth is connected  like threads in a  fabric.
The ancient Japanese people were polytheists.
They believed  in “shinra bansho “. Traditionally,
Japanese artists have employed this concept to make “haiku” “tanka” ”ukiyoe”.
I can feel the existence of nature spirits,too.
I would like as well to employ “shinra bansho “ in my work.
The wisdom of “shinra bansho “has brought harmony between nature and human.
I believe that shooting is “reflecting”.
When I take photograghs  I capture the spirit of nature.
Through my work  I would like to restre
the vibration between nature spirits and human soul.
I define “Naturalism Art” grounded with Mother Earth Respecting nature spirits .

doesn’t talk
doesn’t preach nor explain    (explain)
only standing to give
a tree
that is my master
different meaning when I make any words
a leaf
a flower
a seed
holding infinite wisdom
that is my compass
passing the wind
falling the sunshine
receiving the raindrops
locking nothing
forest   temple of green
that is my place for prayer
learning the cosmos  from a tree
that is a teaching from the ground
