    A special issue of Asahi Camera devoted to Kimura Ihei, this is chiefly an overview of his work during the 50s and 60s. Many of the images had not been published before and it is fascinating to see old favourites in their original context. Curiously, the format of the magazine is particularly well suited to Kimura's documentary style and in spite of the thin paper the quality of the reproductions is superb. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
