Catching Yamame with Junku Nishimura
“I have been fascinated with fishing in mountain streams even before I began photographing. I can catch a yamame, which is a very alert fish, only when I feel myself one with a rock and merged into the mountains. When I take pictures in the streets, I try to be one with a stone in the roadside again; the only difference is what I have in my hand – a rod or a camera.”
Junku Nishimura, Japan.
