B I J I N or 美人, means "beautiful woman" or more generally "beautiful person" in Japanese. BOOK ONE: BLACK & WHITE is the first collection of images in the B I J I N project. The models in this book are my good friends. Women who I find to be beautiful both inside and out. The pictures in this book were taken in Lawrence, Kansas, Tokyo, Japan, and Kamakura, Japan. I am currently in the process of collecting ideas and inspiration for BOOK TWO.
