Shomei Tomatsu's entry into the "Visions of Japan" series, which features his "Plastics" series: images shot at the beach, of the sand, and the plastic. Those familiar with Tomatsu's work from the 60's and early 70's might be surprised at these close-ups of litter at the beach, but they fit squarely into the trajectory of Tomatsu's oeuvre and his long interest in surface textures. A wonderful book about a part of Tomatsu's work that is not often talked about.
