Photographer, Takashi Amano (1954-2015) had advocated the importance of environmental protection by taking photographs of pristine forests in Japan and tropical rain forests around the world. He is also known as the founder of “Nature Aquarium,” which is an art to recreate an ecosystem in an aquarium. In this documentary program, our TV crew had captured his works for 7 years and recorded not only taking photos of pristine forests in his hometown, Niigata, but creating the 40-meter-long Nature Aquarium at the Oceanário de Lisboa, Portugal. What is the message he left us and the earth through all of his life? (The 2015 Award for Excellence of the Japan News Network Council)
