Out of the East: Transition and Tradition in Asia

Out of the East: Transition and Tradition in Asia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In recent years the economies of eastern Asia have virtually exploded. What started in Japan and Taiwan after World War II and continued in Hong Kong and Korea, has now touched Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Traditional societies and ways of life exist side by side with, or are giving way to, electronic and manufacturing productivity and consumerism on a scale that is nothing less than a revolution. While this transformation has been taking place, Hiroji Kubota has been criss-crossing the area for the past three years making extraordinary pictures of the people and places in change. Kubota's keen eye and thorough understanding of the area come together in this volume of superb photographs and provocative captions which, like those of his acclaimed China volume, entertain and educate us at the same time.

Synopsis:

More than two hundred magnificent, full-color photographs document the enormous productivity of eastern Asia against the background of traditional life and culture.

About the Author

Hiroji Kubota is a member of Magnum, the renowned photojournalist cooperative. He has published numerous photographic volumes including Japan, China and From Sea to Shining Sea.
