Remarques & avis / ReviewYukiguni est l'un des chefs-d'œuvre de SHIMADA Kinsuke, une merveille de photographies noir et blanc en grand format, impression (héliogravure) et papier de qualité, qui compte beaucoup plus de portraits, très réussis, que la grande part des autres livres-photos de Shimada. Paysages fabuleux d'un Japon de neige, et la chaleur des gens qui y vivent. Un de nos favoris personnels toutes catégories confondues.

Yukiguni is one of Kinsuke SHIMADA's works of art, a marvel of black & white photography in large size, quality printing (photogravure) and paper, which counts more portraits than the bulk of Shimada's other photobooks. Fabulous landscapes of a snowy Japan, and the warmth of the people living there. One of our all-time personal favorites.
