Additional notes: "Six photos of people viewing cherry blossoms, taken at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo in 2000, are mounted one beneath the other and are reminiscent of a kakemono (the traditional Japanese hanging scrolls). If you gently unfold the sheet, Bobrowski’s poem describing his feelings when viewing a blooming cherry tree appears in the folds between the photos."
