Yamabito, The Mountain People

Yamabito, The Mountain People

Osamu SATO

Publisher: Zen Foto Gallery

These photographs were taken with 8x10 inch monochrome films during 1971 to 1974. As a conscientious salaryman working in a printing company in 1970s Japan, Osamu Sato got one day’s holiday a week. On that precious day, he would take early morning train and a local bus up into the mountains of Gunma. He uses a large format camera. From the 8x10 inch negative he prints a contact print of superb quality. To make larger prints he uses his own home-made enlarger. Not only has he made a precious record but has done so as a true craftsman, and produced a great document of rural life.
