Book Description: The Persimmon’s Fruit is an intimate photographic essay by Nat Urazmetova. Depicting the author’s journey to Japan, it seeks the new sensibilities and subtler connections.

Documentary yet also introspective, the photographs seize and transmit the concealed rhythms and delicate emotions. 

It is an assemblage of the subjective observations about the essence of Japanese culture, altogether creating a poetic story that enfolds both the stillness of a photographic image and the transitory, time-wrapping, nature of cinema. It is also a visual reflection on the concepts of ‘traces’ (omokage) and ‘changeability’ (utsuroi) found in the works by Seigow Matsuoka. ‘The traces quiver, their shapes altered by the circumstances under which they are resurrected. That is the nature of traces of Japan. They are not static… The images that strike us as somehow ‘Japanese’ reveal that quality only in fleeting traces’. 

Rather than attempting to arrive at something descriptive and concrete, the series is instead trailing the elusive atmosphere, accentuating the beauty in imperfections and incompleteness, through light and shadow, contours and fragments, whispers and feelings.
