Japan at a Glance – 100 photos for press freedom


For the first time, the 100 Photos for Press Freedom collection celebrates Japan, featuring fourteen great Japanese photographers and gaijin.
As we know, the word photography, from ancient Greek, means «writing on light». The etymology of the word shashin – sha, copy, shin, truth – opens up other fields of interpretation. This new album brings together 14 photographic «truths» that respond to each other, meet, wink at each other, sometimes clash to the point of contradicting each other and push us to reconsider our vision of a Japan often mirror our own clichés. Fourteen looks for a fragmentary but powerful panorama of a country striking by being elusive.
