Photographer's Note

Red Umbrella

This is a detail of a big red japanese umbrella, used in ceremonies, in this case a tea ceremony.

The owners (a group of japanese guys living here in Brazil) told me that there is only 3 or four like that in Brazil.

Despite the umbrella size, it is a very delicate tool, made of wood and paper. I helped the guys to close it after the ceremony and I could see how delicate it was.

I'm posting a 'tourist like picture' as a workshop just for a reference about the size of the umbrella.

Here is a twin found in Japan.
