Asia Grace


Kyushu, Japan

I was walking down a street in a suburban village on the island of Kyushu and I saw this guy working in his garden in front of his house. He was dressed in these very traditional clothes. They seem almost ornamental. It is possible they were not his usual work clothers since they weren't soiled at all. I took a couple of snapshots of him and he simply let me shoot, while he posed patiently. I had the sense he was very "centered."
