Illustrated by Toshio Shibata

Publisher Note

Twelve years ago, Nazraeli Press published Toshio Shibata's Landscape, the artist's first Western monograph and one which sold out upon publication. In the interim, Shibata has moved to large-format color photography, maintaining as his subject the spectacular, anti-erosion engineering structures so prevelant in the mountainous inland regions of Japan and parts of the United States. Like its predecessor, Landscape 2 is printed in a first edition of 1,000 hand-numbered copies. This important new monograph spans five years of output, featuring 84 of the artist s most powerful recent imagery. Toshio Shibata is one of Japan s most respected contemporary photographers. His work has been the subject of exhibitions and publications throughout Japan, the United States, and Europe, and is included in such public collections as The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Landscape 2 is beautifully printed in an oversized format on heavy matte paper, and bound in Japanese cloth.
