"This is an intimate, intricately researched observation of Geiko and Maiko culture in Kyoto. The elegance and sophistication of these increasingly rare traditional Japanese artists is reflected in the meticulous design, respectful prose and gorgeous photographs. "
"Robert van Koesveld makes photo books, leads photo tours and writes about photography. He is the co-author, with his wife Libby Lloyd of Bhutan Heartland (Fremantle Press, 2010), a book that was well received in Bhutan and internationally. Together the pair lead small group photo tours of Bhutan and Robert leads photo tours for all levels of photographers to Japan, China and India. All these creative activities enable Robert to fulfill his motto: always learning to see'."
