Raising bonsai has been a tradition for than a decade, and as such a tree takes incredible dedication, devotion, and particular care. Bonsai became an infinite source of eastern creativity for photojournalist Stevena Vossa, who was fascinated by the gorgeous flowers, which is reflected in his movie to a large extent.

”Bonsai” loosely translates as ”raised in a tray” in Japanese. Frequently, they are regular trees that have stayed stunted as a result of careful care, root and limb cutting, and a variety of other treatments. ”As a break from other themes, I began photographing bonsai plants two years ago. Eventually, I came to appreciate the magnificence of these trees, and I developed a special bond with them. These trees, I believe, aid in my career development ”Stephen Voss agrees.

”For me, bonsai is a unique object. Normally, I strive to catch something beginning to fade, but these trees are always perpetual, and time was recorded in centuries, if not millennia, for them.” The principles for developing the trees themselves, as well as the standards for their appearance, will motivate the art of bonsai. It is vital to represent them in large maturity, exactly perpendicular to the level of the sight. Stephen, on the other hand, thought it was too ”traditional” and dull. He sought to come up with a fresh way to show these gorgeous trees.

Stephen thought that shooting bonsai close-ups, concentrating on particular portions of the plants, would be a better approach to depict these lovely trees. ”From the moment I saw these spiritual titans, I knew there was something I could gain from them: peaceful serenity, ego, and even brilliance.”
