"Motsure Hotsure Tsumugu tells the story of the kimonos of the Japanese island Amami. It is a poetic photo series about the beauty of kimonos and how they are traditionally produced. Combined with a series of intimate portraits and images of nature, the book has a gentle rhythm in which it shows a quiet and slowly vanishing world full of craft and dedication."
