NAMI is a series of photos of waves around the shores of Sado Island in Japan. The photographer, a young Buddhist monk named Syoin Kajii, watches the water patiently, waiting for a moment of surprise. The photographs are truly stunning. The artist captures the power and dynamism of the ocean and waves, a stark contrast to the tranquil seascapes by Sugimoto. By carefully gauging the speed of the wind and level of the wave, he waits for nature to create the image. These works are close ups, the artist is practically in the water. Syoin Kajil is the winner of the first Foil Award, for which the prize is the publication of NAMI.
