Masao Yamamoto is a Japanese photographer who makes beautiful little artworks from every picture he takes. All of his pictures are small and have an old look about them. Just like a Japanese 'haiku', a poem, his images are very zen. It's not just a matter of making a print, but he takes great care of the extra detailing. Sometimes he adds gold paint to the photographs, he can rub it for hours to make it look older or he starts carefully damaging the sides. In the Netherlands his work is for sale at Gallery Gabriel Rolt.
