This latest publication by French photographer Maki includes images taken between 2001 and 2015 during many visits to Japan. The high-contrast black-and-white photos, from streetsnaps to portraits, landscapes and the occasional erotic image, paint a manifold picture of Maki’s extensive experience of Japan while avoiding the common mistake of needless orientalism.

Says Russet Lederman in her essay “A Journey to Japan Somewhere”: “Maki approaches photography as a series of open-ended encounters experienced from both inside and outside Japanese culture. (...) "Japan Somewhere" travels both figuratively and literally into Japan’s back alleys.”
