Remarques & avis / Review — Inspired by the reading of George ORWELL's 1984, Shunji OKURA strides here through the Tokyo-megalopolis of dark corners and small streets, of large avenues and fake lights, and the contrast between poverty and luxury, the rule and the margin, in truly excellent street shots in black and white. An important testimony and book that shall mark its time. Unavoidable. A personal favorite.

Inspiré par la lecture du 1984 de George ORWELL, OKURA Shunji parcourt ici le Tokyo-mégapole des coins sombres et ruelles, des grandes avenues et du faux éclairage, et du contraste entre misère et luxe, la règle et la marge, en d'excellents clichés de rue en noir et blanc. Témoignage et livre important qui fera date. Incontournable. Un favori personnel.
