Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden boasts a variety of plants and garden designs from around the world. The east end features the French formal garden, lined with rows of sycamore trees. These perfectly trimmed trees have always brought me pause, especially in winter, when their branches are void of leaves. I spend many hours watching and waiting. I want to capture the quietness of the trees that can only be heard when no one else is around. Waiting patiently for 37 million people to get out of my frame, I meditate on the absurdity.
