A Classical SceneBy Mine Manap Turel
The image is a classical one but there is so much wonder in it as well…
Are they a master and student, priest and woman, husband and wife, or a tea ceremony? Given that this image was also taken at the height of the Gion Matsuri in Kyoto, there is a traditional element to it without a doubt.
The Japanese framing work, behind the bamboo curtains, still undeniably private, yet naked.
