1500: Silver birch avenue in Hokkaido (Morita)

The landscape of northern island of Hokkaido is very different from the rest of Japan—the climate is distinctly cooler, and even though the latitude is that of northern Italy, one is reminded of Scandinavia. This elegant avenue of silver birches is near the city of Kitami, close to the Sea of Okhotsk.

Born 1946 in Osaka, Morita set out as a freelance scenic photographer in 1975. He has had numerous collections of his work published in book form, as well as calendars and other media, and continues a punishing schedule, spending 200 days a year tramping the Japanese archipelago for material. (Morita is his family name.)
