Yamamoto Masao

Microcosm-Macrocosm

Microcosm-Macrocosm

Painter by trade but photographer by choice, Yamamoto Masao shares his small-scale, deliberately aged photographs to evoke joyful nostalgia and reflections on life.

On 25 October 2018, Barcelona-based gallery Valid Foto, opened the exhibition "Microcosm-Macrocosm", which featured the work of Yamamoto Masao, a well-known Japanese photographer who visited Barcelona for a third time to attend the event.

The retrospective took viewers on a journey of the artist's work, from pieces that set his career in motion from his "A Box of Ku" and "Nakazora" series, to his more recent series, "Kawa" and "Shizuka". The exhibition also marked the world premiere of his latest series, "Bonsai".
