My photo book “雪景 – Sekkei. 空景 – Kukei.” on sale!
To friends who bought my 2021 calendar, thank you so much for your support! I printed a small amount of my first photo books which is my first baby steps.About the title. Japanese “Sekkei” means snowscape. “Sekkei” is combination of these words: Yuki (snow) and Kei (scenery, landscape view, scene.)”Kukei”, I made up this word to go with “Sekkei”. I used a combination of the words: Ku (sky, space) and Kei to title my photos of sky.
The photos in the book are more personal than ones in the calendar. I chose photos that match what I’ve been feeling this year. Not intentionally but subconsciously. I realized what these photos mean to me when I showed the book to my sister Yuka on Zoom. First thing she mention was “These photos are so 2020.” She didn’t mean the photos are grim or anything negative, of course. I think you will feel stillness, space, and solitude in the photos. She also mentioned some of them are like traditional Japanese drawings. Probably so. That is where I am from and I adore Japanese art.
I printed the photo book using Snapfish, which is not a printing service for professional but they do a good job. This time I wanted to see how my photos in a book form looks like for my next project when I have enough budget.
So here are my humble works, “Sekkei. Kukei”. (11.5 x 8.5 inch, 22 pages)
