CONTEMPORARY JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHY : 1985-2015
From film to digital – the ultimate atlas of contemporary Japanese photography
This book covers 30 years in Japanese photography from 1985 to 2015, compiled and edited by the Japan Professional Photographers Society (JPS) in the 70th year since their founding. Divided into three periods, each lasting ten years, the book covers the past three decades in Japanese photography by focusing on individual photographers, introduced through a representative photograph and a short text highlighting their career and unique qualities. While film was the dominating medium as Japan went through the burst of its bubble economy in the first part of the book, the second (1995–2005) is notable for the rapid improvements of the digital cameras, which then dominate the third period covered in the book.
