Tokyo-based photographer Yasuhiro Ogawa shows us the true magic of Kyoto.
For Ogawa, Kyoto is all about the colors that fill the city and as he said“It changes constantly.”
Eight hundred years ago the Japanese poet Kamo no Chomei penned the following poem:
“The current of the flowing river does not cease, and yet the water is not the same water as before. The foam that floats on stagnant pools, now vanishing, now forming, never stays the same for long. So, too, it is with the people and dwellings of the world.”
“The color of Kyoto tells us that everything is transient, almost like the current of the flowing river,” says Ogawa.
