Hiroo Isono: Enchanted Forests Boxed Notecard Assortment

In this notecard set of four images, he manifests the exquisite seasonal diversity of Yakushima—a lush island home to Japan’s oldest living trees. These sensational forests also served as inspi- ration for the setting of Hayao Miyazaki’s iconic film Princess Mononoke.
