"Iwamiya is probably best known as one of Daido Moriyama's teachers. However, as a documentarian of traditional Japanese culture and craft--gardens, temples, sculptures, and the like--he has virtually no equal... Iwamiya's images of the isolated island of Sado focus on the unusually harsh conditions endured by the people who live there. With a haunting and melancholy tone, they brilliantly convey the simplicity of life there and the appearance of both natural and traditionally crafted objects."--Photo-eye.

Condition: Very Good, excellent for this series - jacket and interior both uncommonly nice. Lately, one of the rarest from the series.
