Toshio Shibata is well known for his large-format landscape photographs, particularly those made in Japan. Shibata's photographs of mountain sides overlaid by concrete "netting" and other engineering devices to prevent erosion and landslides are marked by their abstract beauty and sense of immense scale. Printed in a large 17x14 inch format, and hardbound in Japanese cloth, Dam is limited to an edition of 500 numbered and signed copies. Each copy of the book features an original print on the front cover (shown here), protected by a matching slipcase (still in publisher's shrinkwrap). Shibata's work has been widely exhibited and published throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. It has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and the Centre National de la Photographie in Paris. 2004.
