Remarques & avis / Review — It took Kishin SHINOYAMA two years to complete the present photobook, dedicated to the young and celebrated kabuki actor prodigy specialized in female roles (onna-gata) Tamasaburo BANDO V (born in 1950, then 20 years-old), Jun'ya MORITA XIV's adopted son. Beautiful portraits, on & off stage, a make-up session, a photo-biography, numerous testimonies: a fine book and first photographic collaboration between SHINOYAMA and BANDO.

SHINOYAMA Kishin passa deux ans sur le présent livre-photo, consacré au jeune et célébré prodige du kabuki, l'acteur de rôles féminins (onna-gata) BANDO Tamasaburo, 5e du nom (né en 1950, 22 ans alors), fils adoptif de MORITA Jun'ya, 14e du nom. De très beaux portraits, en et hors scène, une séance de maquillage, une photo-biographie, nombre témoignages : un beau livre et la première collaboration photographique de SHINOYAMA et BANDO.
