"Jun Morinaga’s photography in River: Its Shadow of Shadows is wholly devoid of all presence of people. Any traces
of humans seem to be absorbed by the dark waters he has photographed, which are mostly the many rivers that run through Tokyo. This absence enables his images to freely range between near abstraction and evocations of images and emotions, as the water’s surface texture changes— alternately appearing metallic, muddy, foamy, or evoking a screen, tar, a crater on the surface of the moon, keratoid scars on flesh, or a scene of devastation." (Kaneko/Vartanian, Japanes Photobooks of the 1960s AND ’70s)
