100 Views of Kyoto

The photos in this collection reflect Foster’s intuitive wanderings about the city with his tripod and camera, being diverted by the small detail or flash into the past.

One Hundred Views of Kyoto is a very personal view of Kyoto’s festivals, lesser-known temples and shrines, Buddhist statues, and hidden alleys. It shows places in Kyoto full of color and beauty that will never appear on a postcard and that many natives don't know about.

Many of the photos are close-ups that reveal the emotions of the subjects, such as the pride of participants in time-honored festivals and processions.
