Remarques & avis / ReviewMIDORIKAWA Yoichi's travel in Europe (Egypt, Greece, Switzerland, France, Holland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden) through fine landscape, street shots, portraits and details, mostly in rich gravure, and including double fold-out pages. This book marks a capital turning point in Midorikawa's photography, which switches from portraits and nude to the landscapes he is now best-known for. Avant-garde, finely crafted travel photobook, with great finishing touch & binding design.

Le parcours de MIDORIKAWA Yoichi en Europe (Egypte, Grèce, Suisse, France, Hollande, Danemark, Norvège et Suède) à travers de splendides paysages, villes, portraits et clichés de détails, la plupart en riche héliogravure. Ce premier livre marque un tournant capital dans la photographie de Midorikawa, qui passera des portraits aux paysages pour lesquels il est le plus connu. Livre-photo de voyage d'avant-garde, à l'excellente finition et maquette très soignée, mention pour la reliure.
