Modern Japan, the second largest economy in the world, is a land of contradictions. Home to some of the most sophisticated technology and manufacturing, it also has communities whose daily life has changed little in the last five hundred years. It is a land of great beauty, both in the landscape and in its celebrations, festivals, and traditional arts. After photographing China, Korea, and the United States, Hiroji Kubota spent three years traveling the length and breadth of Japan's many islands, capturing the magnificent diversity of his own country. From rice paddies to pachinko parlors, ancient temples to the Honda assembly plants, Kobota's lens has captured both the ordinary and the extraordinary.

Descrizione libro Norton, 0. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Jam-packed, bustling urban scenes and supremely peaceful, timeless gardens; inexplicable architectural forms of woven fibers and rice farms as far as the eye can see; Tokyo teenagers in international sports clothes and traditional Noh players on stage?the images in this nearly wordless portrait of Japan are as varied and vivid as the country itself. Magnum photographer Hiroji Kubota not only has an exquisite eye for color and composition, he also captures the sense of a particular energy or atmosphere emanating from a scene.
