The photographer Masato Sudo has always been fascinated by the Japanese traditional tattoo culture, Irezumi, which has obtained its status as a tabu until this day in Japan. For his collection RANSHO - The world of Horiyoshi III, he has collaborated with an Irezumi tattooist and his clients, celebrating the traditional tattoo designs and landscapes. The photographs reflect the most traditional tattoos as well as the contemporary approaches, shot amongst nature. In Japan Irezumi is being followed by a criminal stigma even if in the rest of the world ornamenting your body has become more and more popular. The works of body art showcased in the book are an introduction to today’s tattoo culture in Japan.

Le photographe Masato Sudo est depuis toujours fasciné par la culture du tatouage Japonais, l'Irezumi.  Pour son ouvrage RANSHO - The World of Horiyoshi III, il a collaboré avec le célèbre tatoueur Horiyoshi III et ses clients. Il y met en scène les corps tatoués dans le paysage japonais. Les photos mettent en exergue les tatouages les plus traditionnels ainsi que les approches plus contemporains du maitre tatoueur. Au Japon l'Irezumi est - dans les esprits - toujours associé à la criminalité. Dans le même temps l'art du tatouage japonais devient plus en plus populaire dans le reste du monde. L’art corporel exposé dans le livre est une introduction à la culture du tatouage d’aujourd’hui au Japon.
