Masako Oguri, who won the Japan Photographic Society's Newcomer Prize for 2006, and originally from Nagoya, spent 10 years living in Tono of Iwate Prefecture, a place well-known to Japanese as the source of a famous collection of folk tales. 

In this collection, Oguri presents us with a wonderful mixture of landscapes, portraits, and WPA-style interior shots to present a portrait of the area that has become defined, for better or worse, by the folk tales every Japanese knows.
