Un Año en Japón (A Year in Japan) is a photobook with images Nikolai took during his study abroad program at the Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto. The idea to publish a book came up at the time of presenting photographs to a contest that was held at the University of Granada for students who had studied abroad. The book didn’t win, but it remained as a visual memory of the unforgettable time spent at this unique and beautiful country.
The book features photographs of the everyday life in Kyoto: its people, festivals and nature, as well as images taken in other places across Japan.
While mainly composed of photographs, the book contains brief descriptions and remarks written in Spanish.
A number of images from Un Año en Japón are also featured on this website, although many others are inedited.
The book is available to browse online free of charge at blurb.com, where a printed version could also be ordered.
