Remarques & avis / ReviewHiroshi HAMAYA's Yukiguni (1956) is the first major work — here edited and modified by him for the first volume of Asahi Sonorama's prestigious collection — of the famous Japanese photoreporter before he joined Magnum. It is a fine testimony, through superb landscapes and portraits with deep blacks, of the popular customs of the Snowland of Niigata — particularly the detail of the impressive New Year festivities of a small village of 25 households.

Le Yukiguni (1956) de HAMAYA Hiroshi est la première publication majeure, ici réarrangée et modifiée par lui pour le premier volume de la prestigieuse collection d'Asahi Sonorama, du célèbre photojournaliste japonais avant son entrée chez Magnum. C'est un splendide témoignage, en superbes paysages et portraits aux noirs profonds, des coutumes folkloriques du Pays de la Neige de Niigata — en particulier le détail des impressionnantes festivités du nouvel an dans un petit village de 25 maisonnées.
