Remarques & avis / ReviewIkko NARAHARA's Spain, his second photobook, is a massive marvel of late 1960s contrasted monochrome photography in three parts: Grand Tarde (Corrida / bullfighting) / Fiesta (The Festivals of Pamplona, Sevilla, Malaga) / Vaya con Dios (The Castle of Alcazar, Ronda, Andalucia). An outstanding photobook of energy, movement, portraits, fiesta & siesta, shadow and light, perfectly crafted — great paper & printing, with very deep blacks, and the shock of those few color photos inside gate-folds. A joy for both the eye and the hand. A special mention for the great book/slipcase design. A personal all-time favorite.

L'Espagne de NARAHARA Ikko, son deuxième ouvrage, est une merveille massive de photographie monochrome contrastée fin années 1960 en trois parties : Grand Tarde (corrida) / Fiesta (festivals de Pamplona, Seville, Malaga) / Vaya con Dios (château d'Alcazar, Ronda, Andalousie). Un livre extraordinaire d'énergie, mouvement, portraits, fiesta & siesta, ombre et lumière, d'une facture parfaite — excellents papier & impression, aux noirs très profonds, et le choc de ces quelques clichés couleur à l'intérieur des doubles pages. Une joie pour l'œil et la main. Mention spéciale pour la superbe maquette du livre / étui. Un favori personnel.
