Since I started taking pictures for the magazine, one year has passed. These are part of a series of “The portrait of 21 century old bookstore”. This series is being published every month on very old magazine called “Japanese old book communication” which started in 1934 in Japan.
I am enjoying this work not because I am a bookseller but because these are very precious documentary.
“What will happen to bookstores in the future?” “Does the book replace to the E-book?”
I think nobody can answer it. but I believe that recording the present bookstore is going to be a valuable documentary for future generations. Therefore, I am doing this work.
