About The Dreaming
“When I turned 50 last year, I decided to go through all the black & white negatives I had taken so far. A far away monastery in Tibet, a foggy Guatemalan village, and an Angkor Wat temple in the summer rain – I started to spend days and nights inside the darkroom, speaking to my old self. Every moment of the journeys may have been vision of dreams – that’s what I thought when I tracked down my old archive. And I might be still dreaming.” – Yasuhiro Ogawa
So, Ogawa took the ferry from Kobe to Shanghai 27 years ago. Here, he emerged on a long journey through Asia. The photographs in this book present his travels as if they were impressions from a dream. For example, the beautiful black and white images create the world as seen from the eyes of a young adventurer overwhelmed by what he witnesses, who surrenders himself to the experiences and sights he is met with.
