Inspired by performance art and by the power of "subtraction" to find absolute beauty, Seiju Toda created a series of 33 compositions called "Heian", a term meaning "peace" and "serenity". In a meticulous process that took several years, Toda both assembled the pieces using plain wood and living creatures - birds, fish, insects, reptiles - and directed the photography with careful consideration for the natural elements. The result is a work of art unto itself; designed by the artist, printed on beautiful paper, intriguing, amusing, tranquil and pure.
