Based on the philosophy of "recovery of humanity through the rediscovery of the Earth", Mr Shirakawa was able to encapsulate in one volume the vivid, sublime and marvelous nature of the planet Earth, showing it from dawn to sunset. It could be claimed that expressing this idea or ideology by photographs, over a period of 20 years, is unique in the history of photography.
