Book Description London : Thames and Hudson, 1992. Condition: Sehr gut. 132 S. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - The 'East' - what Westerners call Asia - has undergone astounding changes in this century, changes which are still in progress. Leo Rubinfien spent his early youth in Japan, and returned there in 1979 to begin a photographic project which ultimately lasted eight years and produced more than 100,000 pictures from places as diverse as China, Burma, Java, India, Hong Kong, Bali, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam. His aim was nothing less than a new map of the East, a topography of the soul, ranging over a vast stretch of flamboyant humanity who are at once innocent and sophisticated, multicultural and isolationist. The very best of these vignettes are now gathered together with an essay by the eminent authority on Japan, Donald Richie. This intimate look at the ordinary life of the Far East unearths traces of the area's complex history in the most commonplace situations, from the faces of Japanese salarymen and the glittering architecture of Tokyo's Shinjuku to the bar girls of Bangkok and the bombed-out relics of the Vietnam War. Old native elements and traditions clash, collude and combine with what is most modern - and hence seemingly Occidental in a colourful mixture of tawdriness and splendour, natural tranquillity and relentless development.
