Autumn Gardens in Kyoto
In the autumn of 1993, I began work in Kyoto on an entirely new series of images with the ultra large format 8×20 camera. These photographs would later become a hand-made, limited-edition book. The book of twelve copies was set in letter press type and bound accordion-style, in luxurious silks, by one of the oldest book binding families still remaining in Kyoto.
Originally planned as a single volume, the book grew to become a set, one with vertical images and one horizontal. In this way, I was able to express in quotations and haiku the different, and yet similar, approaches to creating a work of art from western and Japanese viewpoints.
These are the first six of the 24 images that have been scanned for final printing and cataloging. The remainder will be completed shortly.
All photographs are available for purchase. Sizes up to 4 X 10 feet.
