Publisher's Description

Signed on a loose print!

With his masterful sequence A Walk Through A Bamboo Grove, Hokoku-ji, Kamakura, Kanagawa, Japan, David H. Gibson brings the viewer into another space and time. Kamakura, a seaside Japanese city famous for its many Buddhist Zen temples and Shinto shrines, is also home to immense groves of moso bamboo. Attaining heights of over 90 feet, this giant timber bamboo sheds its older leaves as new ones unfurl, blanketing the ground within the dark, cool groves.

One experiences a sense of awe, vicariously wandering in the grove on the paths provided, with unexpected vistas, ancient stone lanterns, and the repetitive rhythm the bamboo segments. Looking up, one sees what appears to be a gothic cathedral, with the sky as the roof.

David H. Gibson’s work has been widely exhibited and written about, and is the subject of several monographs. The artist’s original photographs are housed in numerous public and private collections, among them Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth, Texas; Citibank North America, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas; Deloitte & Touche LLP, Washington, D.C.; and Ballinglen Arts Foundation, County Mayo, Ireland.

A Walk Through A Bamboo Grove is limited to 500 numbered copies, each including a 5x7 inch original print that has been signed by the artist.
