Impressed by the traditional beauty and simple design of Kyoto's temples, shrines and gardens, photographer Hiroshi Masaki (born 1949) depicts the city as a place of spirituality and history. This hardcover compiles his photographs of Kyoto along with an essay by curator Simon Baker and a text by the artist.

Uwajima is the first photobook by Japanese photographer and rare book dealer Hiroshi Masaki (born 1949). The black-and-white photographs in this collection were all taken between 2008 and 2010 in the artistís hometown of Uwajima. Reminiscent of the New Topographics idiom, they show the streets and buildings of the city devoid of people.
