Akan: Lost World

Cody was commissioned to photograph Akan National Park, one of Japan’s oldest nature reserves, for Kushiro City Tourism Office.

Akan is located in the farthest reaches of Hokkaido, in the North of Japan. The photo series explores the lakes and mountains of the area. Though the subject matter is different from his previous work, Cody sees a deep connection between his home country, New Zealand, and Akan.

The series of images are to be used for promotional material for the National Park and the region, and are also available as limited edition prints.
