Masao Yamamoto is a freelance photographer known for his small photographs, which seek to individualize the photographic prints as objects.Using the camera to capture suggestive, observational imagery, Yamamoto provides the viewer with an experience quite similar to that of reading haiku. His photographs are simple, unparticular images that give little to the eye, but offer up the ingredients for a deeper engagement of the work on some emotional or personal level.

Yamamoto studied oil painting under Goro Saito in his native city. He presently uses photography to capture images evoking memories. He blurs the border between painting and photography however, by experimenting with his printing surfaces. He dyes, tones (with tea), paints on, tears his photographs. His subjects include still-lives, nudes, and landscapes. He also makes installation art with his small photographs to show how each print is part of a larger reality.
