The photographs in that book had a distinctive atmosphere, in combining fine detail whilst also being of very high contrast. The overall impression was extremely dark. For this new book, this darkness has become even more powerful. Many of the photographs were taken in well-known parts of Japan. Yet the impression given is not of the beauty of this land, nor of order and affluence. Mizutani has revealed the ugliness and chaos that is still present in modern day Japan.(pr)
