Taiji Matsue has photographed the surfaces of the earth around the world—mountains, deserts, forests, cities. By taking photographs during the time of day when light falls uniformly across the surface, shadows and horizons are eliminated from the frame and emotionality is carefully excised. The minuteness of the images that reveal details the more one looks at them allows the viewer to experience anew the unreliability and mysteriousness of human sight.
From Daido Moriyama (as printed on the cover): "This view almost exposes the city; it's nothing but a visual scandal."
