The cherry blossom season is just over in Japan and all that can now be seen is petals on paths and waterways, which creates a more contemplative atmosphere than the euphoric blossoming. This Cover Photo by Toshio Enomoto, taken from the series Sakura, shows such a scene.
Upon arranging for this photograph, Enomoto-san wrote to us from Amsterdam, where he attended the opening of his first solo exhibition outside of Japan. He also informed us that the series Sakura had been purchased by Huis Marseille Foundation of Photography in the Netherlands. Congratulations!
Please also see our previous feature on Enomoto and the series Arlequin.
I went to Enomoto’s exhibition at the Wouter Van Leeuwen gallery in Amsterdam last month and walked in just as a young French couple was buying a sakura print. The prints are great and it’s nice to see him getting some recognition in Europe.
