Remarques & avis / ReviewIhei KIMURA's travels in China — which always remained for him a source of inspiration given his interest in the 'man in the street' — in the 1960s-70s. The last photobook edited by KIMURA before his death (a few months before its publication). A finely crafted masterwork of portrait & street photography. Some color shots.

Les voyages de KIMURA Ihei en Chine — qui demeura toujours une source d'inspiration pour lui du fait de son intérêt pour "l'homme de la rue" — dans les années 1960-70. Le dernier livre édité par KIMURA avant sa mort (quelques mois avant sa publication). Excellents portraits et clichés de rue, belle facture. Quelques clichés en couleur.
