Regular price €70.00 Sale

Once again we go back to the East, to Japan. This time our research leads us to deepen the relationships of this culture with Nature: relationships that seem ambivalent and contradictory to us. It is adored, mythologized and at the same time sacrificed and violated to the needs of the user and cementing. SHIZEN (Nature) is a book that remains suspended between the branches of its veils, its light papers, traditional and fleeting panoramas that run between the fingers of the reader like a silk thread.
