Working as a flight attendant, Yayoi Arimoto began taking photographs on a recommendation from a passenger. She has been a freelance photographer since 2006, with pictures shown in a number of magazines, advertisements, exhibitions, and more. This extensive photo book is filled with the remarkable residues of her travels, with images from dozens of lands and cities that leave indelible impressions on the mind and soul. Five short travel narratives add personal depth to the book. Whether in Myanmar, Ethiopia, Albania, Vietnam, Scotland, India, Greece, Croatia, Estonia, or Kyrgyzstan, she holds true to her claim that “the state of beauty is brilliant in unawareness, as of the beasts.”
