Yugen

Yugen is a 44 page hardback photographic book which examines a key concept in traditional Japanese aesthetics.

Yugen (n) - Meaning dim, deep or mysterious, used to describe the subtle profundity of things that are only vaguely suggested. Hinting at something that is beyond what can be said, but is not an allusion to another world. It is about this world, this experience. A compound word, each part yu and gen, meaning cloudy impenetrability, and the combination meaning obscurity, unknowability, mystery, beyond intellectual calculability but not utter darkness.
