"The book is beautifully designed, bound in printed linen boards with an elastic holding the pages, an accordion fold, or leporello, a form that also allows the pages to be unfolded and all images to be viewed at once. This type of binding makes a subtle connection to popular tourist view albums, an allusion that is delicately followed up in somewhat expected photographic subject matter of Japan - an expansive shot of Tokyo, koi, a Japanese maple, rice fields. These images serve to emphasize the nature of being a tourist, but are cast in a tone that causes them to transcend a simple reading. Haiiro translates to gray or ashen, and all of the images are overcast, not simply in hue but in emotional tone." - Sarah Bradley on photo-eye Blog.
