The process involved the two brothers walking through the city from their studio, taking a single photograph of each blossom-covered tree they came to until the roll of film ran out. The photographs were taken with a Japanese-made Nikon camera using Japanese Fuji film. The unexposed rolls were then sent to Tokyo to be developed and printed, physically making the journey suggested by the cultural connection between blossom trees in London and the symbolism of blossom in Japan – in doing this what looks like a simple picture is, in fact, the physical embodiment of a thought process connecting two countries.

The images are immediate and instinctive reactions to each individual tree and every print is a physical item with a specific history. Since the printing of the images and their journey are both integral parts of the complete work each print is a unique piece
