For Exposure of Japan, Japanese photographer Rie Miyoshi creates magical double exposures, highlighting the nuances of the natural and made-made landscapes in the country she calls home.

Writes Miyoshi in her Artist Statement, “The contrast of the urban city vs. rural mountains and contemporary culture vs. traditional Japan never ceases to intrigue me. Japan is a dynamic country – parts of it are constantly evolving, others are at a standstill – and holds countless untold stories that I want to share through my work. Every place has so much character that it’s impossible for me to capture in a single shot, which led to my multiple exposure series. While Tokyo’s sprawling cityscapes are amazing, I’m most inspired by God’s nature.”
