Golden light is a series of flower images by photographer Keiichiro Muramatsu. The flower arrangements are by the photographer himself. Â This style of flower arrangement is called â€œNageireâ€. Â It features prominently in this collection, and emphasizes the natural state of wildflowers, â€˜â€™thrownâ€™â€™ into the tranquility of vase water. This series is inspired by Junichiro Tanizakiâ€™s In Praise of Shadows. The splendor of gold is accompanied by a deep shadowy aspect. The beauty of gold not only magnifies the natural beauty of flowers, it also reflects a feeling of the impermanence of things and the transience of time. The flowers, water filled to the mouth of the vase, and the vase itself, are all enveloped in a golden light, representing â€˜the vastness of infinityâ€™ and bringing out the natural warmth of the tableau.
