About Laurence Vecten’s Selection for 10x10 Japanese Photobooks
I love the pondering side of Japanese photography. Japanese photobooks are compilations of poems for me. Some poets are well known; some use light; some use nostalgia. I love the magic of Japanese photobooks —a magic that can only be encountered during a visit to Japan.
