Emon Photo Gallery presents the latest private work by Osamu Yokonami as he revisits his enchantment with the number 1,000, gained upon viewing the thousand statues of the thousand-armed deity–Kannon–in the Hall of the Lotus King in Kyoto.

Seen all together, the neutral expressions on the faces of a thousand children captured by Yokonami begin to betray their underlying emotions, and the near-identical composition of each photo unmasks the vibrant individuality inherent in each child.

Now compiled in a beautiful book, Yokonami invites one and all to enjoy this ambitious exhibit featuring motion picture and installation art. Published by Antenne Books.
