Finest Japanese books of photography And More

What is photography?  Photography is still 'on trial' (A.Stieglitz): it cannot be called 'an art' in the same sense as existing forms of modern arts. But here are some definite answers given by Japanese photographers of our time in  the printed form of their portfolios.  Page by page, your eyes and mind will trace the 'time space' fixed and preserved by those 'hunters' of the light.

Our World:          

  Photography is the only "language" understood in all parts of the world, and bridging all nations and cultures, it links the family of man. Independent of political influence --- where people are free --- it reflects truthfully life and events, allows us to share in the hopes and despair of others.

(Helmut Gernsheim, 1962; quoted from On Photography, Susan Sontag)
