Kurayami by Akira Uchida is the soundtrack to the book of the same name by photographer Masao Yamamoto.

Photographer Masao Yamamoto and musician Akira Uchida continue their creative collaboration with “Kurayami”, initiated by French publishing house Iikki.

Yamamoto’s photographs capture sights and events from the natural world – back-lit flowers, a single cloud in the sky, the sea at night, a tree at night against the stars, three sleeping ducks, the barely visible shape of a mountain behind fog – with unparalleled admiration, poetry and an eye for beauty. While the simplicity of his compositions invite the reader to get lost in single pictures, when viewed in sequence the photographs build towards a bigger picture, towards a heightened awareness of the world’s richness.

Akira Uchida provides a soundtrack of atmospheric melodies which heighten the primordial and meditative qualities of Yamamoto’s images.
