About this title


The Japanese word sonomama means in a natural state or just as you are. To create this book, Taishi Hirokawa, the internationally-renowned photographer, traveled throughout the Japanese countryside to photograph ordinary people in the creations of some of the world s top fashion designers: shopkeepers, fishermen, schoolchildren, & farmers, modeling bold, stylish outfits by Bigi, Issey Miyake, & Comme des Garcons. This is the opposite of typical fashion photography, resulting in dramatic duotone images that strip away the artifice & the image-creating power of the clothing & draw attention to the people themselves. Oversize.

About the Author:

Taishi Hirokawa is a leading photographer whose works has been exhibited worldwode.
