meeting the great mitsuo katsui -sensei,
longtime judge for the morisawa awards,
professor of musashino art university

philadelphia museum of art / harry n. abrams)

all photography by:
yasuo saji, tokyo
akira kobayashi, tokyo

to his great surprise,
jml was asked to give the opening speech to the morisawa exhibition...

the moment of a lifetime --
jml struggled to decide which language... and then struggled to give his first japanese speech ever

jml signing his poster
"mainichi kame-iro"
as a gift to the morisawa company

kame forgot his suit...
but is never shy
of his corporate color
