Photographer Thomas Peter immerses into a life of minimalist details in a Japanese Zen lifestyle. Through this collection of pictures Thomas drags us into the story of one of Japan’s minimalists, Fumio Sasaki, a Japanese editor who has decided to live with less and get more out of that simplicity.
His house is a reflection on how Japan’s traditional Zen Buddhism allows us to re-evaluate what possessions mean, to gain something else. And how to let the clutter go giving up to those materialistic attachments.
In his simple house everything has a place and a purpose.
Neither more, nor less…
With a clear purpose in mind. “Spending less time on cleaning or shopping means I have more time to spend with friends, go out, or travel on my days off. I have become a lot more active.”
From inside out, each single object express de-clutter
“I became a minimalist so I could let things I truly liked surface in my life.”
An approach that has been implemented by the most highlighted visionaries; think of Steve Jobs and his simplistic wardrobe.
Leaving space for less distractions and choices, increases the opportunity to boost up your imagination and creativity.
The negative spaces give space to stretch out all your capabilities.
So give it a chance, and keep it simple. keep it light! A minimalistic home style for a meaningful lifestyle.
