While visiting the Native American Indian Quinault Forest in 1990, (outside of Seattle, WA, US) Ueda,who was then established as a fashion photographer, had a “moment of vision,” and decided to photograph the forest. He returned with an 8-by-10-inch camera to create the Quinault Series to which this image belongs. Ueda's sublime eye-level photographs capture his encounter with the forest in a sublime series of images where the greens and blues of leaves, moss, and grass are captured in tones that are nearly neon. This Series was published in the important book "Quinault: Yoshihiko Ueda" (June, 2010) amongst many other publications.
