Ume Kayo

While I was in Porto, Cristina introduced me to the wonderful work of Japanese photographer - Ume Kayo. Ofcourse, when I told my friend Miyako about my recent discovery, she said, "Ofcourse I've heard of her, she's famous!".
Well, there you have it my friends - clearly I've been living under a rock. ;)

So! Here are some of my favourite photos from 3 of her books...
