Whimsical hidden self-portraits by Wataru Yamamoto

For Japanese photographer Wataru Yamamoto’s Drawing a Line series, Yamamoto walked into the Kumano virgin forest armed with a large-format camera and a long cable release to trip the shutter with. The result: intriguing self-portraits that hint at the spot where he was standing at (he can hardly be seen), thanks to the clearly visible cord in the pictures.
