Silk Road by Kishin Shinoyama

Silk Road €50

The work of Japanese photographer Kishin Shinoyama in this collection is drawn from 8 volumes published in 1981 and 1982. These photographs illustrate the way people lived through scenes in markets and places of worship. They are a priceless record of treasures such as the Buddhas of Bamiyan in Afghanistan, the ancient site of Palmyra and the souk of Aleppo in Syria, which have now disappeared due to wars and fanaticism.


With the Fashion Eye collection, Louis Vuitton Editions strives to explore photographic creation while celebrating the art of travel. Title after title is built a heterogeneous sum of views that alternates according to destinations, urban panoramas and natural landscapes, scenes of local life and more contemplative shots, images in color and/or in black and white. Each book in the series includes a wide selection of large-format photographs.
