Remarques & avis / ReviewIhei KIMURA's beloved streetcorners and 'men of the street' in postwar Japan (1950s-1970s), with a few shots from Europe and China. A remarkable portrait, without make-up, of the Japanese and of an era, in large, fullpage pictures (previously unpublished in book form) in a fine volume. A personal favorite.

Les coins de rues et les "hommes de la rue" chers à KIMURA Ihei, dans le Japon de l'après-guerre (années 1950-70), avec quelques clichés d'Europe et de Chine. Un portrait remarquable et sans fard des Japonais et d'une ère, en grandes photos inédites en volume, à pleine page, dans un beau volume. Un favori personnel.
