Remarques & avis / Review — The Japanese people's everyday life, in times of peace and times of war. One of Shomei TOMATSU's first solo photobooks, when he was working for Iwanami. Great portraits by the famous photographer — families in their home, boys and girls at school, playing in the streets... —, the contrasts and similarities of rough and easier times, along with war archive pictures. A fine work of photo-realism.

Le quotidien des Japonais, en temps de paix et temps de guerre. L'un des premiers livres de photographies solo de TOMATSU Shomei, alors qu'il travaillait pour Iwanami. Superbes portraits par le célèbre photographe — familles dans leur maison, garçons et filles à l'école, jouant dans les rues... —, les contrastes et similarités de temps durs et plus aisés, et des photos d'archives de guerre. Bel ouvrage de photo-réalisme.
