The 27th publication in the Nazraeli Press One Picture Book series. From the publisher: "Red-crowned cranes are considered to be sacred by the Japanese people. Once almost extinct, today approximately 2,000 of the rare birds remain in all of Eastern Asia. Since 2002, Camille Solyagua has repeatedly traveled to the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido in mid-winter to pay homage and photograph the birds. With grace and elegance she has produced a series of remarkable photographs, brought together here in her contribution to our One Picture Book series. This is the artist's fourth book with Nazraeli Press."
