Hanabi-Kei ("Views of Fireworks")

Kazuma SAEKI

Publisher: akaaka-sha

The elusive beauty of fireworks, captured in time.

Fireworks are an indispensable part of Japanese culture. The fireworks follow Japanese aesthetics, and the delicate colors of the fireworks are intertwined with the colors of the seasons. Kazuma Saeki, photographer and licensed pyrotechnicist, has been taking photographs of fireworks since 1987. He insists on using analog film cameras to capture the intrinsic fascination of the fireworks, focusing on single moments of fleeting beauty rather than employing multiple exposures or other techniques. For this book, Saeki has selected 70 images from his many years of work throughout Japan.

The book also includes an afterword by Saburo Kawamoto (all texts only included in Japanese language).
