I’m back in Onishi, Gunma for a few days visiting Shiro Oni Studios where I did a photography residency in April. Fireflies are on my mind. The photos look like a collection of darkness until you click them to enlarge. Fireflies, hotaru, are increasingly rare in Japan. The places they can be seen are decreasing and their numbers are smaller as years go by. These ones didn’t come out until it was full dark, around 7:45.
