Themes such as time, emptiness, nature, and consciousness have been the focus of photographer Peter Granser’s personal projects of the past several years. Hence ‘88 Stones’, a meditative reflection on the beauty of geological processes. The series consists of 88 stones collected by more
Granser and his wife, Beatrice Theil, near the village of Kamiyama on the island of Shikoku, Japan. Arranged in order from the largest to smallest, the individual stones exhibit an astounding variety of colours, veins, and striations. Shikoku is famous for the Henro, a pilgrimage path connecting 88 temples, as well as for its eye-catching stones, which are used in many Japanese gardens.
