A beautiful collection of Taiji Matsue’s (mostly aerial) landscape photography on 348 pages, protected by a heavy aluminum cover on front and back.
In his horizon-free landscape photographs, Matsue subjects diverse areas around the world to his uniform set of compositional rules, creating an engaging study of abstract landscape photography.
“From the extremely desolate, dry world that is manifested from the entirety of this thick catalog titled ‘Taiji Matsue,’ I can perceive a sense of eroticism that is similar to the feeling of being in trance. […]
This collection of Matsue’s photographs allowed e to sense for the first time that the earth is really such a beautiful planet.”
