Yamamoto Masao: Collotype Portfolio

$1,200.00

Yamamoto Masao (b. 1957) was trained as an oil painter before turning to photography.
With his portraits, landscapes and still lifes he tries to capture the harmonious details
of life that we often miss and unexpected moments of reality that look almost unreal.

Benrido collaborated with the artist to make a limited edition portfolio which contains
three color collotype prints in a handmade box by craftspeople in Kyoto.
Yamamoto’s beautiful images with delicate sensitivity seem to be his reflection on 
memories and the passage of time.

The artist made no specific comment, but provided a poem below for these subtle images:

‘In the evening of autumn day,
every moment fades away, nothing is permanent.
Yet, things like a certain “thought” remains
vividly as a beautiful image.
I do not understand the law of how certain things
remain while certain things disappear
and I don’t want to know.’
