Product description

"This book resonates with the sublime and perceptive visions of this city by its very talented contributors. With a few deft strokes of a pen and a meditative use of the camera lens, they capture the heartbeat of the allusive moment nestled within."--Judith Clancy, "Exploring Kyoto: On Foot in the Ancient Capital"A sensitive response to Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan. The heart of the book is a dialogue between the poems of Edith Shiffert and over one hundred duotone photographs by John Einarsen.
