"These are photographs taken while I visited Portugal in november 2007. (...) I took photographs of impressive views in Portugal. It is not record of my travels. I took images of daily life in Portugal. It is fragment of memory." Sayuri Naito

In this photo book “PONTE 25 DE ABRIL”, we see the everyday scenery of Lisbon without depicting people, which was photographed with calm colors, and expressed through Sayuri Naito’s personal vision.
Her landscape photography has a transparent and strong atmosphere and it makes us feel honest and purified, and also it makes us feel warm, and it brings back our old memories somehow. It seems as if the “bodily warmth” of the universal memories among human beings is being conveyed to us over the border between countries through Sayuri’s landscape photography.
By the way, my writing about her photography is also published as one of the reviews in this book, “PONTE 25 DE ABRIL” by SAYURI NAITO.
All the writings in this book are translated in Japanese, English, and Portuguese.
It’s a lovely, wonderful book… I recommend it toYOU!"
