About Masao Yamamoto
Yamamoto was born (1957-present) in Aichi, Japan and was initially interested in pursuing painting. So he studied oil painting, under Goro Saito. Even though Yamamoto shifted into photography in 1980, his painting background is still apparent in his works’ painterly look. For example, he incorporates blurs. He also experiments with printing surfaces. Also, his subjects vary wildly. They range from the Japanese countryside to nude female bodies. Many liken Yamamoto’s art to haikus, due to his mastery of brevity and focus on everyday details. His photography and prints are on display at museums like the J.P. Morgan Chase Art Collection as well as many other private and public collections.
