What do you mean by "the way of simplifying", or simplifying what?

The last sentence I cannot really agree with. There is definitely a tradition of non composed "decisive instant" pictures in Japanese photography. And while Sugimoto hardly builds his subject matter either. There are many Asian photographer working on deliberately staged photos.
look lots of asian photo art and see what way they are simplified, i cant really explain it. i didnt mean that none of the asian photographers stage their photos, but overally the trend is to find art in some everyday stuff that isnt art
