Remarques / Review — An excellent collection, all in black, by Shomei TOMATSU, with texts by the Japanese anthropologist Ryuta IMAFUKU, along the cities next to which the American Forces set their quarters (like Nagasaki), and the Japanese islands before relocation, return or withdrawal (like Okinawa), and what happened next, until then. A beautiful photobook.

Un excellent recueil, tout en noirs, de TOMATSU Shomei, accompagné d'un texte de l'anthropologue japonais IMAFUKU Ryuta, le long des villes près desquelles les forces américaines établirent leurs bases (comme Nagasaki), et des îles japonaises avant déplacement, rendu ou retrait (comme Okinawa), et ce qu'il advint ensuite, jusqu'alors. Un magnifique ouvrage.
