This work represents the first comprehensive collection of his work spanning from 1935 to 1953. “Kimura has never tried to awe the public with his art. His art is devoid of cold austerity or harsh cynicism... Kimura is one of the editorial associates of the magazine 'Asahi Camera'. We owed much to his untiring efforts in building up this magazine to the world's largest camera magazine in a brief period since was restarted in 1949 after the wartime suspension.” (Preface). It includes previously unpublished images from Okinawa, China, Manchuria, and Akita as well as a selection from the Onoe Kikugoro series. The book-binding is designed by Hara Hiromu.
