Remarques & avis / ReviewIhei KIMURA's light and masterful 'impressions of Europe', taken on the occasion of a six-month journey (Egypt, Greece, France, Germany, England, Italy) in 1954. A marvel of street photography — Kimura's subject is 'the man in the street' — and the exact complement of Yoichi MIDORIKAWA's impressionnist Sketching Tour in Europe (1960).
