Light and shadows in the land of the rising sun
Beyond the classic interpretations that the collective imagination attributes to the land of the rising sun, the three hundred pages of this large-format volume, created thanks to years of research, numerous travels and excellent collaborations, offer an in-depth investigation into the fascinating contrasts and the indecipherable behavior of a culture that always appeared impenetrable to Western curiosity and logic. Hundreds of spectacular and unpublished photographs will lead you directly to the heart of the planet Japan, enhancing its lights to investigate its disturbing shadows. Shadows not only intended as evidence of incredible contradictions but as fundamental elements for the understanding of an extraordinarily complex universe. A path of images and evidencies dedicated to a country still able to surprise, fascinate and propose new questions and equally new solutions, in an extraordinary kaleidoscope of conservation and disruption, of tradition and avant-garde.
