Uwajima is the first photobook by Japanese photographer and rare book dealer Hiroshi Masaki (born 1949). The black-and-white photographs in this collection were all taken between 2008 and 2010 in the artist’s hometown of Uwajima. Reminiscent of the New Topographics idiom, they show the streets and buildings of the city devoid of people.
“Hiroshi Masaki has, I believe, brilliantly captured the timeless soul of the archetypal Japanese hometown as it exists in our imagination”.
