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. Ainsi ce volume grand format de photos couleur de la fin des années 1970s, bien fini, consacré à la vie insulaire des habitants de l'archipel d'Okinawa, et à leurs coutumes et traditions, cérémonies et rites si particuliers. Beaucoup de portraits. Un bel ouvrage.
