The fleeting beauty of Japan
Toshio Enomoto’s book “Kagirohi – Sakura Kyo Tayu” captures the quintessential beauty of Japan in masterful black-and-white photography. Taken between 1976 and 2008, his timeless images record blossoming cherry trees, Japan’s old capital of Kyoto – its rituals and ceremonies, its shrines and streets – and the geisha in their traditional costumes, both mid-performance as well as backstage. Dancing between reality and imagination, Enomoto uncovers Japan’s fragile but beautiful core.
