Kokyu by Taro Tamai

  • “Kokyu” means “breath;” and this book shows the ultimate harmony found in nature.

    All living things have a constant rhythm ingrained in them. When we find ourselves in the chasms, gulfs, and crevasses of the natural world, we feel that we are also part of the laws of the universe. The natural world only bestows its exceptional beauty to those who lay eyes on these chasms.

    Taro Tamai is a snowboarder who has executed many sensational first track runs. Just as his own Gentemstick snowboards exemplify, his constantly evolving mindset uplifts his brand's uniqueness, drawing international attention to his brand. Aside from his own riding achievements, his philosophy is also derived from harmony with nature, which he prizes. Searching for those harmonizing points of contact, he encounters such junctions in the scenery he always captures in photographs. The photos he wants to preserve are gathered in this collection published by Bueno! Books.
