Review — The astounding and monumental travel to Western Europe and first photobook of NARAHARA Ikko, in a festival of superb subjective and experimental photography, mostly in contrasted blacks. Fantastic care was put into the crafting of the volume, excellent paper & outstanding gravure printing. A very impressive work and corner stone of postwar Japanese photography. Uncommon. A personal all-time favorite.
