> Nipponshi-dori <

Nipponshi-dori represents the imaginary street in Japan where these authentic photographs were taken. This neologism was created to establish a unity in space for all those images and could be translated as "the street of a Japanese city". My photographs represent an open window on a different world. Everybody can interpret them differently and can travel his own way. R. Dejarnac (c) 2016-2018.

> Spirit of Japan <

The idea behind this series of photographs is to showcase the culture, the tradition, and the history of Japan from the perspective of minimalist objects or scenery depicted in black & white photographs. The monochromatic tone translates the timelessness the Japanese civilization is plunged into for thousands of years. R. Dejarnac (c) 2016-2018.

> Nihonjin <

Nihonjin: Japanese people native to Japan. In this series of stolen street portraits, I wanted to capture the face of Nihonjin in nowadays Japan. The young, the old, students, workers, clerks or even the emblematic geishas. Each person is in his own environment, which I tried to disturb as less as possible. One can see that even now the duality Tradition/Modernity is omnipresent in Japan. These photographs represent my testimony of Nihonjin from the XXI century. R. Dejarnac (c) 2014-2018.

No need to introduce Nutcracker, one of the most popular ballets in the world from Russian composer Piotr Tchaikovsky. 120 years after its premiere at Mariinsky Theater in St Petersburg, I have followed the 'Sugar Plum Fairy' all day long in the endless walkways of the Prague National Theater until she appears magnificently on stage. Aya Watanabe is an accomplished Japanese ballet dancer, who produced herself in the most prestigious stages all around the world and who is now part of the Prague National Theater Ballet. R.
