Children of the drum

Sports House
Photographer and geologist Mark CouttsSmith gave a fascinating anthropological look at life on Sado Island, Japan, home to the Kodo drummers, known for their drum playing and ferocious physical performance. The only foreigner ever to join Kodo's staff, his superb black and white photographs and music provided a wonderful insight into the drummers' famously spartan lifestyle.
