    Chewing Gum and Chocolate. Fotografien von Shomei Tomatsu. di Tomatsu, Shomei. e una grande selezione di libri, arte e articoli da collezione disponibile su One of Japan’s foremost twentieth-century photographers, Shomei Tomatsu has created a defining portrait of postwar Japan. Beginning with his meditation on the devastation caused by the atomic bombs in Nagasaki, Tomatsu focused on the tensions between traditional Japanese culture and the nation’s growing Westernization, most notably in his seminal book Nihon.

    Shomei Tomatsu (–) created pictures that balance perilously between despair and admiration, anger and delight, articulating the essential conflicts he found in his country after World War II. Sharp and elegant, they are not so much descriptions as they are records of fleeting, unremarkable moments. Of all the classic Japanese books, it is the only one to integrate all the sixties countercultures: sex, prostitution, drugs, depravity and student protests. The protest sequences are where Tomatsu's foray into Provoke sensibility is most heightened; it is also the most successful section in this remarkable book. (Parr / Badger, v1, ).
