Remarques & avis / Review — An outstanding issue of Asahi Camera Annual for 1969, that presents, in a beautiful volume, the highlights of Japanese photography world for 1968. In addition, three young photographers are singled out — Hiromichi (Daido) MORIYAMA, Takayuki OGAWA and Kishin SHINOYAMA — and a special section is dedicated to the 1968 social issue of the 'campus rebels'. A great selection of pictures by then &/or now famous (Ikko NARAHARA, Eikoh HOSOE, Akira SATO, Ken DOMON, Ihei KIMURA, Takuma NAKAHIRA, Haruo TOMIYAMA, etc.) and equally talented photographers, well-worth rediscovering, in full post-VIVO / early Provoke period and effervescence — the first issue of Provoke is incidently mentionned in the list of photobooks published during the year. Remarkable bookcrafting, layout, printing and paper. An very important issue, quite uncommon.

Un remarquable numéro du Asahi Camera Annual pour 1969, qui présente, dans un superbe volume, le meilleur du monde de la photographie japonaise de 1968. De plus, trois jeunes photographes sont mis en avant — MORIYAMA Hiromichi (Daido), OGAWA Takayuki and SHINOYAMA Kishin — et un chapitre est spécialement dédié au grand problème social de 1968, les "rebelles universitaires". Une excellente sélection de clichés de photographes connus alors et/ou à présent (NARAHARA Ikko , HOSOE Eikoh, SATO Akira, DOMON Ken, KIMURA Ihei, NAKAHIRA Takuma, TOMIYAMA Haruo, etc.) et de photographes tout aussi talentueux, à redécouvrir, en pleine effervescence et période post-VIVO / début-Provoke — le premier numéro de Provoke est par ailleurs mentionnée dans la liste des livres de photos publiés dans l'année. Maquette, réalisation, impression & papier remaquables. Un numéro très important, peu courant.
