Japanese photographer Takeshi Suga sent me a link to a new collection of photos titled Winter Wonderland which are quite lovely.

Although I’ve been remotely inspired by the song Winter Wonderland, my main focus is to explore the idea of a wonderland in wintertime Japan. Winter in Japan can be extremely harsh but I seek moments of euphoric serenity it also offers every now and then. That’s where I believe Winter Wonderland resides.

What I love about these is just how wonderful the images really are. They look like something from a fantasy, or more specifically Ridley Scott’s fantasy film Legend, who’s more glamorous shots look a lot like these. They’re so iconically winter it actually makes me want to be in the snow, which is something you will never hear me say in real life.
