    Very interesting, will watch them all. Lot of sympathy for the more is more concept. Totally alien to much of what we preach of course, but the less is more we preach is only a convention and received wisdom. It is there to be challenged.

    Yep, thanks for the link, Zou. I watched the Tomoko Sawada (self portrait) series and, fascinating :)

    Must admit, Zou, that I've become a fan of a few Japanese photographers recently, so thanks for the link. Also not that long - 5 or 6 years - a fan of Fan Ho (ho ho but NPI!), a Chinese photographer who died in 2016 and is no longer cranking out his pictorial masterpieces. Did AP do a mention or obituary for him? Don't recall one.

    Maybe this should be a bit of a RIP Thread in that only two years ago, I discovered Dave Hendley, a UK photographer who travelled to and photographed in Japan quite a lot. He died in the summer but his Flickr site is still up and well worth a visit. Highly recommended. Happy New Year. Cheers, Oly

    Hi all,
    I love this painting. I bought it a few years ago, from a woman, on the promise that i would give it a good home. I know that she didn't want to part with it, but didn't know why. I don't think it's Japanese, but have wondered ever since who the artist is, and what the writing on it says. If anyone knows, would you please let me know.
