Publisher's Description

After visiting Japan during the 70’s and 80’s, and after the disappointment to see that even regional cities had been developed to the point where they all resembled a mini-Tokyo, Gerry Johansson (b. 1945, Swedish) decided to focus his creative energy on capturing the environment surrounding the Japanese people, as opposed to the people themselves. He chose not to merely record the bustling modern development of Ehime Prefecture, the core of Shikoku, but to also capture the exceptional natural beauty of the region. He took his camera to the rocks and mountain streams of the Nametoko Valley, deep inside forests teeming with the energy of life, and to the waters of the Seto Inland Sea.

The book is divided into three chapters, according to the book’s title. Photographs taken in Ehime Prefecture, Japan, September and October 1999.

First edition of 375 copies, numbered and signed.


'In 1999 I was invited by an organization called the EU Japan Fest. They initiated a large documentation project called European Eyes On Japan. Every year, two or three European photographers are invited to depict an area in Japan. Since Japan is divided into 47 prefectures the idea is that all would be photographed. I photographed during three weeks in Ehime Prefecture on Shikoku island, south of Hiroshima. All work is shown in catalogs and exhibitions in Japan and Europe, and the project is still ongoing. Last year's catalog was the 16th. It should by now be the most long-lived photo project.' — Gerry Johansson
