A Kyoto Portrait

A geisha retreats into a traditional house.

Kyoto, Japan / 2018

Of all the images I've ever taken, this one is among my true favourites. Nothing expresses the idea and symbolism of Japan quite like the Geisha. Roaming around the traditional area of Gion in Kyoto one night, I was lucky enough to see one moving from building to building. Geisha sightings are over in a flash however, and this image was taken in mere seconds before she hurried off inside.

Additional information

About the paper

A premium 260gsm, Lustre-finish photo paper from Japan has been chosen for this giclée print. Lustre is a great paper for deep blacks and highly saturated colours. It has a mild gloss to it, and can easily be hung up on its own, or framed.

For best results, please allow the prints to gently flatten out over a few days upon arrival before framing or hanging.


Please note that the prints do not come framed.

While every measure has been taken to ensure colour accuracy across every step of the journey, please note that there may be minor colour variances between the device you are viewing this website on and the actual physical print itself.

Due to the availability of different print sizes, varying aspect ratios have been chosen and your final print may or may not have minor cropping changes to ensure the best possible quality print. They are still, however, edge-to-edge and full-bleed.
