Remarques & avis / Review — Undoubtedly the most beautiful retrospective of Shomei TOMATSU's photographic works, with a focus on ruins and some pictures previously unpublished in a book, skillfully selected by the famous art and photography critic and art historian ITO Toshiharu (1953-), in a volume exquisitely crafted and designed, by the late publisher Parco.

Sans aucun doute la plus belle rétrospective de l'œuvre photographique de TOMATSU Shomei, avec pour thème fédérateur la ruine, et quelques photographies inédites en volume en prime, habilement choisies par le célèbre critique et historien de l'art ITO Toshiharu (1953-), dans un volume avec une réalisation et finition exquises, chez le défunt éditeur Parco.
