Just after the sun sets, the all-too-brief time when the most stars appear in the sky is called “The Magic Hour.” The sky is awash in pastel pinks and purples, and due to the way light evenly circles the heavens, the full scenery on the ground steps up its presence; as time goes by, the most beautiful shapes emerge and transform. It is a secret, special slice of time on earth. We are introducing approximately 60 works that photographer Yoshimura Kazutoshi took in Europe, America and around the world, capturing “The Magic Hour.”
