Syoin Kajii: Nami
The book and the photographer seem to be very interesting:
“His works appeal to me like an ethnic music I’ve never heard of.” – a comment by designer Hideki Nakajima. Among 1200 applicants of the 1st FOIL AWARD, Syoin Kajii was selected as a grand prix winner by Yoshitomo Nara. He doesn’t only take photographs of sea wave in Sado island, but also a priest of esoteric Buddhism. He carefully gauge the speed of the wind and level of sea wave, in order to shoot the waves he aims at. The hitch and faith of his works realize spiritual and dynamic photographs. Designed beautifully by Hideki Nakajima, the works are pulled together as a magnificent and refined photobook.
How much is the NAMI book in US dollars? Shipping costs, please. How do I order the book?
Thank you, Allan Marquardt
You can buy the book at photo-eye (see my link list) for 45 US$ plus shipping. If you are living in the USA you could also contact Kinokuniya which has several stores in the US. They should be able to order any Japanese book for you.
By the way, the Kinokuniya flagship store in Takashimaya Square/Shinjuku/Tokyo is one of my favorite bookstores in Japan.
