Remarques & avis / ReviewKen DOMON's work of art, with Rumie (1960), of raw, social-humanist photo-realism, dedicated to the children of the coal mines of Chikuho. A fragile, poorly printed book and treasure of youth and misery. Splendid portraits. Uncommon, especially in a fine condition.

Le chef d'œuvre, avec Rumie (1960), de photographie réaliste brute et social-humaniste de DOMON Ken, sur les enfants des mines de charbon de Chikuho. Un livre fragile, imprimé en noir sur mauvais papier, et trésor de jeunesse et de misère. Superbes portraits. Peu courant, particulièrement en bon état.
