Remarques & avis / Review — A beautiful photobook by Shimpei ASAI in Jamaica, dedicated to Ernest Hemingway. This is outstanding photography and matte color printing: sea, sun, beaches, cities, portraits of locals, and an invariably excellent sense for details and colors. A sure favorite.

Superbe ouvrage d'ASAI Shimpei en Jamaïque, dédié à Ernest Hemingway. C'est photographie et impression mate en couleur remarquables : mer, soleil, plages, villes, portraits de locaux, et un excellent sens du détail et de la couleur. Un favori certain.

Divers / Misc. — There are two editions of this photobook: while the content is identical, the first one comes with a plain slipcase, while the second, published one month later, comes with a fine pictorial dj and is by far the more uncommon of the two.
Il y a deux éditions de ce photobook : le contenu est identique, mais la première est sous simple étui muet, alors que la seconde inclut une jaquette illustrée et est de loin la plus rare des deux.
