Elizabeth SiegelISBN: 0865592179;
Photographer Tokihiro Sato (b. 1957), along with contemporaries Toshio Shibata and Naoya Hatakeyama, focuses on the shifting landscape of Modern Japan. Using a 8 x 10 inch camera fitted with a darkening filter, Sato creates lengthy exposures in which he moves throughout landscapes, pausing periodically with a mirror that reflects sunlight back at the camera. The light is recorded as traces of his presence, but he himself is rendered invisible by his motion. Essay by Elizabeth Siegel. Paperback, 9.5 x 8.5 in./40 pgs / 15 duotones.
