Those pictures, photographed with large-format Polaroid, which apparatus is discontinued already, seem like homage to the Impressionist.“Civil [email protected] Hiei” is a series produced in Japan, where Almond has taken particular interests in its culture and drawn his inspiration to works. He has visited Japan several times since 1990s and created numbers of works adopting the ideas he got through sceneries seen and incidents encountered during his visits.
