Takashi Amano

Born in Niigata, Japan in 1954, is a Japanese landscape photographer. Since 1975, Amano has visited tropical rainforests in Amazon, Borneo and West Africa and pristine forests in Japan, and he has been working on series of photos focusing on "untouched nature" with his large-format cameras. He captures minute details of nature found at site on extra large size films (up to 8x20 inches). One of his master piece, Japanese cedar tree in the primitive forest of Sado island was presented at the G8 Toyako Summit in Hokkaido, Japan in 2008 which addressed the environmental issue as the major issue.

In recent years, Amano has given numbers of lectures on his photography expeditions and his experiences in nature around the world, and he has advocated the importance of tree-planting programs to protect the earth's environment.
