PreConceived Notion of Japanese Photography

This reviewing of modern Japanese photography has been a real eye opener.  I thought of Japanese photography as being like Haiku. bonsai, meal prep in Japan - very nice, orderly, calm and non-confrontational.  Sort of like Hiroshi Sugimoto’s work seen below

Instead I’m confronted with photographers like Araki and Daido who present in a chaotic manner, out of focus, huge grain.  Lesson learned!
