Remarques & avis / ReviewYoichi MIDORIKAWA's work of art, a marvel of photographs, photographic compositions and of avant-garde printing techniques, and a revolution in landscape photography (here the seashores of Japan's Inland Sea) where all, from book to detail, ravishes the eye. Uncommon. An absolute personal favorite.

Le chef-d'œuvre de MIDORIKAWA Yoichi, merveille de photographies, compositions photographiques et de technique d'imprimerie d'avant-garde, et une révolution dans la photographie paysagiste (ici les littoraux de la mer intérieure du Japon), où, du livre au détail, tout séduit. Peu courant. Un favori personnel absolu.
