An actual “miniascape” represents a personal world of making a miniature landscape, and it was developed particularly in Japan to encourage “sandplay therapy”, which is a form of psychological therapy for treating the human mind. Reiko says “When I look at the printed square images, I get a feeling of knowing about the inner functions of my mind by seeing the reflection on the window, though I’m looking out through the window at the same moment. In other words, such a photograph can be thought as a ‘miniascape window’ to me”.
