Remarques & avis / Review — A beautiful and massive pictorial history of Japanese photography from Meiji to the end of WW2, focused on photography itself (more than 700 plates!) as a capital material for an historical draft, in a superb, large, well-crafted volume. A personal favorite.

Une superbe et massive histoire illustrée de la photographie japonaise de Meiji à la fin de la seconde guerre mondiale, centrée sur la photographie elle-même en tant que matériau capital (plus de 700 images !) pour une esquisse historique, dans un superbe volume grand format très bien fini. Un favori personnel.
