Katsumi Omori, Cherry Blossoms
This one was bought at Donlon in London too, I paid £40. It was published by Little More in 2007. I’ve first seen this book thanks to the Photobookswap, but I have nothing to swap… so when I saw a my copy waiting for me on Donlon shelves, I couldn’t resist. This book is so poetic, and magical. Japanese books are often amazing.

Published 2009 by Hassla books, we bought this one during our London trip, at Donlon on Broadway market, about £15 You may already know I have always been attracted by snow in pictures, it’s my eyes’ magnet. I thought you could by it on Hassla, but it’s sold out (good for me !).
