About the Book
"Reminiscences of Good Old Nippon" is a photographic anthology of seasonal life in Japan. Since I have photographed in America for many years, as a Japanese national I have been eager to embody what NIPPON means to me. These photographs evoke for me emotions in psychological landscapes rooted deeply in Japanese spirituality and aesthetics. Through my life in America, as well as my own identity, I'm aware, among other things, of those elements influenced by the natural environment of the distinct four seasons, cultural norms, traditional customs, and social milieu.
