Kazuyuki Ohtsu (Japanese, b. 1935) creates sōsaku hanga (creative prints), meaning he handles every step of production—painting the original pictures, carving the woodblocks, and printing the images. His prints are poetic contemplations, drawing us into lovely, tranquil scenes of natural beauty and harmony. The more than 50 images presented in this book convey a sense of the universe slowed down, of moments when things come together in a fine stillness and life aligns. They are what you feel when you stop and pay attention and simply let your surroundings sink in.
