About the Book
In this book, Swiss-Japanese artist David Favrod elaborates in a very intriguing and playful way on archetypical Japanese images, ranging from aesthetic landscapes, to witty images of sumo wrestlers and geishas. Turning visual clichés into an intelligent and contemporary reflection on the complex relationship between the self, the other, image and memory Favrod questions both the Japanese identity and his personal relationship towards this country that is both known and utterly alien to us.
