Masao Yamamoto's gorgeous monograph provides an ideal forum for his exquisite installations of intimate, dreamlike photographs. Working from a Zen philosophy of "emptiness," Yamamoto makes images that are essentially vignettes of nature and our intersection with it, ruminating over the passage of time and memory. His finished prints are miniature treasures that are toned, stained, torn, marked, rubbed and creased. One has an experience of looking at a group of found vintage photographs, telling a familiar yet unique story.
