These night skyscapes show the beauty of the sky in relation to the Earth as it moves through the universe with a multitude of stars, planets and other celestial objects, creating images that we cannot possibly see and a picture of both place and the course of time.

About Infinite Night, Honda says: “Our connection to the universe lies in our view of the sky, and its preservation is important to our species and our heritage. I want to show the beauty of what lies beyond our globe, a view many cannot experience as artificial light increases. But the parks are places where we can see stars. It is these experiences that I try to portray through the [exhibit’s] images.”
