Because i have always had an interest in Japan, i noticed this book on Japan at a local secondhand bookstore. Still sealed the one i have for sale now, but the one i leafed through was already open so i had a quick look. I noticed that these were real life photographs, not one of them was staged and they reflected a Japan that i very much would like to see and experience at one time. For now i have to content myself with the book ( available at http://www.ftn-books.com) until it is sold

Pierre Faure was born in 1972 in Nice and lives in Paris. He studied economics. He produces at first a work in which abstraction and organic evocations occupy a central place (series Rhizomes, Plis, Palimpsests); series which question the look of the spectator and play with the notions of scales and perspective. He also approaches the social question by realizing a work of dumping within a community Roma of Ile-de-France (2011-2012). In 2013 he is interested in the life of people in big precariousness welcomed in emergency reception center and tries to seize in this everyday life the figures of a wounded humanity. In parallel in these works he pursues since 2010 a series on the urban trees, questioning the place of the vegetable in urban zones.
