Kawori INBE, photographer. "Time to go back... to the moon." Japan: 2013, First Edition, PB, 27 cm x 21 cm, 128 pp, 92 color photos, photo index, text in Japanese & English.

"The title of this work refers to the traditional Japanese "Tale of the Bamboo Cutter," about a magical princess who must eventually return to her home on the moon. Kawori Inbe says that her subjects harbor an "imaginary landscape" inside of themselves, suggesting that perhaps they might feel a connection to the princess of the story. Each photograph in this book shows a female subject, and Inbe has captured her subjects in poses that seem to hint at their inner lives. Inbe writes that she only photographs women because are "mor flexible" in front of the camera. Certainly, it would be hard to disagree with her after looking through the expressive images that she has captured here.Through her staging of her portraits--either the clothes her models are wearing, or the settings in which they are photographed--Inbe shows her subjects in their full power. This book was nominated for the 2014 Ihei Kimura Photography Prize. Includes English translation of a text by Kawori Inbe."--publisher
