Jun MIKI was one of Japan's pioneers in photojournalism, the first Japanese photographer to publish in Life Magazine. Despite only publishing this one masterpiece of a photobook, Miki is held in only slightly less regard than the Japanese King of photojournalism, Ken Domon. Indeed, this book is published by the same publisher as Domon's landmark Hiroshima and the lavish construction of this book mimics that one - same size, same quality printing materials. The Miki Jun Award was established in 1999 to remember his legacy.

Chapters: 1) Brasilia, 2) Cristalina, 3) Ouro Preto, 4) Women in Rio de Janeiro, 5) Modern Industry, 6) The Xavantes Tribe in Amazonia, 7) Japanese in Sao Paulo, 8) Copacabana & Ipanema, 9) Carnival. The "Brasilia" chapter is a fascinating look at the city as it was being created and the architecture of Oscar Niemeyer. "Cristalina" visits a mining region and one thinks of Domon's masterpiece Chikuho no Kodomotachi. Though published in 1967 the photographs were taken during visits in 1958 and 1960 so the connections to Domon's greatest photobooks are closer than one might think. This photobook is destined to be included in future references whether that is a future volume of Parr and Badger or someone else - eventually someone will have to take notice of the second great representative of Japanese photojournalism.

"Reproductions of Miki's photographs of Rio and Brazil in the late sixties - the architecture, the people, the women, printed in rich gravure. This is the only large-format book Miki Jun published in his life-time. The dark photogravures are a superb record of Brazil in the 60s, capturing the amazing energy and the optimism of the period. Parts of the new capital of Brazilia had just been built by Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa and their grand architectural vision is documented in a series of impressive black-white images. Kenko-sha's gravure printing is among the best ever!."--Photo-eye
