Masao Yamamoto originally studied oil painting under Goro Saito in his native city. But he now works with photography. Photography helps him to capture images that evoke memories, and this is what matters to him. A reference to painting is still noticeable. Yamamoto likes to experiment with surfaces, often blurring the borders between painting and photography in his work.
