Remarques & avis / Review — In 1972, Shomei TOMATSU moved to Okinawa, which had a major influence in his photographic work. Hikaru Kaze is a subsequent, large-sized and well-crafted volume of color and colorful pictures of the late 1970s, focused on the everyday island life and pace of Okinawa's people, and on their peculiar customs, traditions, rites and ceremonies. Lots of portraits. A beautiful photobook.

En 1972, TOMATSU Shomei déménage à Okinawa, qui eut une grande influence sur son œuvre.

Beaucoup de portraits. Un bel ouvrage.
