About this title


To penetrate the mystery of Japanese culture and more particularly the essence of its aestheticism was the daunting task Philippe Terrier-Hermann set for himself. He first created a panel composed of a hundred Japanese residing in Paris, a kind of "Japanese elite" in France supposed to embody the soul of theircountry. From Kenzo to the presidents of Suzuki, Toshiba or the "House of the culture of Japan", he encountered them one after the other, thus defining a list of sites and concepts to translate into images. This work proposes, by way of an aesthetic treasure hunt and using the tricks and techniques of a marketing study, to embrace a highly romantic question. Philippe Terrier-Hermann allows us to see a modern version of the photographic journey of the XIXth Century, but in the socio-economic realities of today.
