As a traveller, you will be amazed by the charming courtesy with which you are welcomed and also the care and refinement of Japanese food culture. It is a country where the majority of the population lives in the big cities, but Japan also stands for beautiful unspoilt landscapes and thousands of islands in the Pacific Ring of Fire. Marc Popelier’s lifelong passion for Japan crystallised in the pages of this photo book. Sights and scenes of Japan is a perfect introduction to Japan and will definitely convince anyone who was still hesitating about a trip to this fascinating country.
Kiripi Katembo (1979-2015) photographs the urban chaos of the metropolis of Kinshasa. He brings out both the absurd and the beautiful. Reflections, dizziness, rescaling, colour contrasts and saturated shades of black make Kinshasa and its twin cities shine as never before.
