MASAO YAMAMOTO: TORI. Radius Books, Santa Fe, 2016. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 160 pp. with 60 ills. 30 x 24 cm. ISBN 9781942185130 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: As a small boy growing up in the Japanese countryside, photographer Masao Yamamoto enjoyed looking up at the sky. From his classroom window, he would gaze at the windblown clouds, mesmerized by airborne creatures such as birds, butterflies and winged insects. He sometimes dreamed of riding on the back of a bird and flying away to faraway places. Yamamoto's career as a photographer began in 1993. One of Japan's most important living photographers, Yamamoto has taken many different approaches to photography over the past 20 years. But what has remained constant is the artist's belief that humans are just a small part of nature, united with it and part of it. Throughout his career, Yamamoto has often returned to animals, particularly birds, as a subject, reflecting his childhood fascination with the creatures and his eternal commitment to the unity of humanity and nature. With Tori, the photographer departs on yet another artistic journey, with a new series of quietly moving animal images (tori means "bird" in Japanese). Yamamoto asks himself, and his viewers: What do we see, and what do we identify with, in birds?
