Haruhiko took some photographs of my bonsai... They are serene formal portraits. When I look at my bonsai I see the faults, the branches I haven't wired at the right angle, the trimming I need to do and the weeds. In Haru's photographs they are timeless. These are young bonsai, I have been doing it for about fifteen years, so they are slim but have elegant trunk lines and beautiful pots.
