Historical photographs of Japan’s sights from the Meiji period (1868–1912) inspire the photographer Naoya Hatakeyama to visit those places and examine them anew. In a playful juxtaposition of photographic archive material and his own shots of those sites, he traces the temporal aspect that is located between the tourist views of the past and the landscape of today.
