Description The Great Buddha of Kamakura. This huge, bold, beautiful copper stature stands outside, in temple grounds. Its subtle features show something different each time you view it. He is a favorite of President Obama.
Larry Knipfing, Yokohama, Japan Member Since August 2010 Artist Statement I am a New Yorker who has lived in Japan for 30+ years. As a photographer, I am very lucky: Japan is a country filled with beauty.
It is my great privilege to be able to share her beauty here with you.
Enjoy, and (if you'd like) buy a framed photo to hang on your wall at home so that the beauty of Japan is with you always as it is for me in everyday life.
HOW TO BUY PHOTOS HERE When you see a photo you like, you have a few purchasing options:
1. You can choose 'As Customized by the Artist'. This is my recommendation to you for paper, matting, frame, and glass. If you like it like that, then just click the 'Add to Cart' button.
2. But if you would like a different combination of paper, mat, frame and glass, you can click the 'Customize' button.
3. It is also possible to just purchase the photo as is and frame it yourself later.
