Born in 1957 in Gamagori, in the Japanese prefecture of Aichi, Masao Yamamoto is a photographer who began his art studies as an oil painter under the supervision of Goro Saito in his hometown. Masao subsequently discovered that photography was the ideal medium for the theme that most interested him: images with the ability to evoke memories.
'Small Things in Silence' offers a perspective on twenty years in the career of one of Japan’s most important photographers. In the words of Yamamoto himself: “I try to capture moments that no one sees and make a photo from them. When I seen them in print, a new story begins.”
