Remarques & avis / Review — A beautiful photobook by Kinsuke SHIMADA, remarkable through the exclusive use of color — all in all quite scarce in Shimada's work — and the utmost care given to the balance of shapes and colors — mostly tri-dominant : sky, earth, greenery — of these hills of Hokkaido, between Asahikawa and Furano, in all seasons. A master work of Japanese landscape photography and one of our personal all-time favorite.

Un très bel ouvrage de SHIMADA Kinsuke, remarquable de par l'usage exclusif et fort-heureux de la couleur — somme toute rare chez Shimada — et le soin apporté à l'équilibre des formes et des couleurs — la plupart à tri-dominante : ciel, terre, verdure — de ces collines d'Hokkaïdo, entre Asahikawa et Furano, en toutes saisons. Une œuvre maîtresse de la photographie paysagiste japonaise et l'une de nos favoris personnels.
