Yamamoto Masao Collotype Portfolio

A special handcrafted portfolio featuring three of Yamamoto Masao’s works

About the Artist

Yamamoto Masao (b. 1957) was trained as an oil paint- er before turning to photography. With his portraits, landscapes and still lifes he tries to capture the harmo- nious details of life that we often miss and unexpected moments of reality that look almost unreal.

Project Story

Benrido collaborated with the artist to make a limited edition portfolio which contains three color collotype prints in a handmade box by craftspeople in Kyoto.

‘In the evening of autumn day,
every moment fades away, nothing is permanent.

Yet, things like a certain “thought” remains vividly as a beautiful image.

I do not understand the law of how certain things remain while certain things disappear
and I don’t want to know.’
