For four years in a row, Japanese artist Yu Yamauchi spent five months each year 10.000-feet above sea level. There he photographed the dawn everyday from the same location, chasing the ever-shifting scenes. Yamauchi said, that “this space above the clouds exists far from the ground, where we live our daily lives. It is also a space between the earth and the universe. Beeing there simply reminds me of the fact that we live on the earth, which is a planet within an infinite space of the universe.”

Located in a hut near the summit of Mount Fuji, Japan, every of his 600 days were spent getting up while it was still dark to photograph the sunrise from the same location. ❚
