Celestial Gardens: Kyoto Imperial Palace And Gardens

Kengo Kuma

Yukio Futagawa is recognised as one of the word’s foremost photographers of contemporary architecture. His skill at capturing and expressing the beauty and richness of buildings and their surroundings is reflected in his latest collection of photographs, in which he seeks the root of architectural art through the undoubted spatial essence inherent to traditional Japanese structures and landscaping. Futagawa received special authorisation to revisit the grandeur of Kyoto’s imperial residences and their gardens during each season of the year. These timeless images are decidedly different from any existing photos of these gardens, a masterful tribute to Japanese beauty.
