Yasuhide Kuge visited numbers of ateliers of prominent Japanese
artists and photographed the very places where "values"
are created. Including that of Yayoi Kusama, Katsura Funakoshi and
Takashi Murakami, the artists' sacred places are vividly and lively
represented in this photo book. From the set of tools to their staff
which/who support the artist physically and mentally - by the photographer's
intervention, the private space will expose the richness of the
very "scene" of creation.

extends before our destined place.
If the "Garden" is lying on the boundary between architectures.
If the photography is lying on the border between senses and words.
They bear a close resemblance.
