„The Persimmon’s Fruit is an intimate photographic essay by Nat Urazmetova. Depicting the author’s journey to Japan, it seeks the new sensibilities and subtler connections unfolding when imagery and poetry loop together in a book format. 
Documentary yet also introspective, the photographs in the book seize and transmit the concealed rhythms and delicate emotions. There is tenderness found amongst the grandeur and geometry of cityscapes, and elegance seen in haphazard encounters. The details which often passed unnoticed stimulate the author’s gaze the most, and the poetic verses deepen the emerging narratives far beyond the depicted. 
The Persimmon’s Fruit an assemblage of the subjective observations about the essence of Japanese culture, altogether creating a poetic story that enfolds both the stillness of a photographic image and the transitory, time-wrapping, nature of cinema. Rather than attempting to arrive at something descriptive and concrete, the book is instead trailing the elusive atmosphere, accentuating the beauty in imperfections and incompleteness, through light and shadow, contours and fragments, whispers and feelings.“
