JAPAN AS VIEWED BY 17 CREATORS (2006, Toptron Ltd T/A Fanfare) 4 stars

Review of 'JAPAN AS VIEWED BY 17 CREATORS' on Goodreads

4 stars

17 different views of Japan, both from the inside and the outside. I loved the juxtaposition between the locals and the foreigners, each saw and focused on different things. Different schools of visual language contrasted nicely with each other: Japanese vs. French, Eastern vs. Western, photographic vs. impressionistic. Overall a very interesting collection of visual stories, I've marked most of the creators' names for further exploration.
