John Einarsen says this about his new book of photographs:
Each encounter I had with a member of this vast race revealed an individual with a personality all its own, the result of a history at once common and mysterious. Inevitably, I came to see them as they really were: creatures who populated the niches and nooks and corners and alleys of neighborhoods and streets and lives....Cycle Kyoto adds this note:
Most of the images in the book were taken in Kyoto over the years.
Each photo in In the Realm of the Bicycle is a haiku, a brief fleeting moment that contains a larger truth.To view a sample some of the pages, go to: blurb.com.
John Einarsen is the founding editor & art director of Kyoto Journal, an iconic English-language quarterly that emerged from Kyoto during the 1980's, about to embark a new incarnation online.
