Historical Streetscapes In Japan - Morita Toshitaka
|Publisher||Mitsumura Suiko Shoin|
For this spectacular photo series, Toshitaka Morita travelled throughout the Japanese islands of Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu, and Okinawa to capture picturesque scenes seemingly untouched by time. These streetscapes, each with a explanation about its history, together express the ancient heritage of Japan: traditional wooden houses and buildings, agricultural fields, tidy stone streets, vibrant autumn foliage, mossy walls and streams, and snow-covered villages. Born in 1946, Morita started out working for the photography section of a map publisher before becoming a freelance photographer in 1975. He has been taking pictures of national parks in Japan for about 50 years.
