In March of 2016 Dan Rubin and Craig Mod, a fellow photographer and writer, walked for eight days on the Kumano Kodo, a thousand year old pilgrimage path in the mountains of Japan.
Koya Bound is the beautiful culmination of that trip.
“We walked for eight days – long enough to taste the rhythm of a walking life. Ever Koya-bound along the ancient path. We stayed as pilgrims of the past did – in small inns and homes. We quantified ourselves as pilgrims of today do – with apps and wrist gadgets.” – An excerpt from the book.
A limited run of 1,000 copies were printed, along with a special red linen cover edition. A few copies are available in the Photographer’s Gallery now for those quick enough!
