Two softcovers in slipcase, photographs by Tamiko Nishimura, text by Tamiko Nishimura, design by Amanda Lo, reprint of the original book from 1973, edition of 700 copies, signed.

The book “Shikishima” is a series of photographs taken during 1969-72 on the artist Tamiko Nishimura’s journeys around the Tohoku, Hokuriku, Kanto, Kansai, and Chugoku regions of Japan.

"The weather changed often, with strong winds, sunshine, clouds, and rain. I was strongly attracted by the how the light shined, by the smell of flowers, and just by the atmosphere of the place, rather than what I actually saw. Even if I walk through the same place every day, each walk would be different, depending on who I meet or how the light shines. It is not particularly about visiting somewhere new. Still, while watching foreign ships in Kobe Port I dreamed of one day sailing in one to a country I’ve never been to before." (Tamiko Nishimura)
