“The Scent of Water” – Yukio Sakaue’s pensive visualisation of her hometown in rural Japan.
The picturesque, almost French-landscape-painting like photographs in Sakaue’s new photobook invite the reader not only to wander with her through the quiet, calm visual elegance of her hometown but inspire the motivation to try and look at one’s own familiar surroundings in a new way, finding previously unnoticed beauty.
“Let me continue to look closely at the scenery today and dream about the scenery tomorrow. The only wish I have is for time to move forward slowly.” (from Yukio Sakaue’s afterword (available in Japanese and English translation))
