“‘The Persimmon’s Fruit’ is a photographic travelogue about Japan, there’re also some words included in the book. My intention was to tell a visual, somewhat poetic, story about traveling to Japan without showing any recognizable tourist hot spots, exposing clichés, making the statements or objectifying anything. From the very beginning, I wanted the images to communicate the opposite of the sensual overload which is present in Japan, especially in the metropolitan areas, – something quieter, perhaps, more introspective, yet nevertheless diverse and engaging.”
