Magnesium Photographer Damon Coulter takes a fresh look at the Bushidō (武士道), the ancient samurai “Way of the Warrior” in an upcoming photo essay. Far from being a simple romantic notion in modern Japan, its influence can still be felt in the moral code of the Japanese people and their perceptions of honor, obedience, duty, and self-sacrifice.
