yamamoto masao & arpais du bois


 A Japanese photographer.
An artist in Belgium.

Different continents.
Different generations.
Different media...

yet a shared passion for
purity
and
simplicity.



What a treasure to experience
this collaboration (unlike any other book I own)
organized as a conversation between images.

Arpais Du Bois has been making daily
drawing diaries for more than a decade.
Pages from the diaries are torn, assembled,
and exhibited.




In Arpais' work, Yamamoto Masao glimpses
"an unfettered spirituality that defines
the essence of the human act of drawing."

Arpais says Yamamoto's photos reveal "a tender melancholy."

is a book of artful images, a conversation
between creatives who understand each other.
It's one of those hushed and whole-hearted dialogues
you dream of having with a kindred spirit
across the miles and one on which
I highly recommend you eavesdrop.

Are you making time to experience and be nourished
by beautiful art?

p.s.
did i mention i cherish this book?
