Remarques & avis / Review — This is one of those photobooks we long to come across. Every bit of it is a joy: excellent black and white photographs, excellent subjects, very fine printing and paper, comfortable size... Miyajima (which also goes by the name of Itsukushima) is located in the Seto Inland Sea (Setonaikai) in Hiroshima Prefecture (Kansai area). It is renowned for its rural tranquility, its maple trees, splendid in autumn, and the Itsukushima shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. TAKAYAMA and HARADA here present us with the Miyajima of the 1970s, through superb snap shots of the inhabitants' daily life — lots of portraits, pathways and impromptu places and things. A remarkable work. Rare.

Voici de ces livres-photos qu'on aimerait voir plus souvent. Tout y est réjouissant : excellentes photos noir et blanc, excellents sujets, très bonne impression, très bon papier, format agréable... Miyajima (ou, de son autre nom, Itsukushima) se trouve au bord de la Mer intérieure (Setonaikai) dans la préfecture d'Hiroshima (région du Kansai). Elle est renommée pour son calme rural, ses érables, splendides en automne, et le sanctuaire de Itsukushima, patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO. C'est le Miyajima des années 1970 que TAKAYAMA et HARADA nous font ici découvrir, à travers de fabuleux clichés de la vie quotidienne de ses habitants — beaucoup de portraits, de ruelles et de choses impromptues saisies à vif. Superbe ouvrage. Rare.
