Manabu Yamanaka Photograph




WuKongMangMangRan

Bequeathed to me an everlasting image of its perfect beauty.



Jyoudo

Paradise for Buddhists the pureland of Buddhism



Dohshi

Their eyes were marvelously pure, like incarnations of the Zenzaidohshi,
children of ancient times who had rid themselves of all desire in pursuit
of the Way of the Buddha.



Gyahtei

The final photograph exposes the body
caught in a state
between life and death.



Fujohkan

The thin bone of this corpse
exposed a beauty and vulnerability
reminiscent of Haniwa,
which mademe decide to photograph it.





Arakan

Of the hundreds of people, I selected 16,
who I believe possess abilities,
which elevate then above normal
human being to a level whose some of the greatness of
Buddha is manifested.
