Tokyo: Shashin Hyoronsha Publishing House, 1971. Hosoe. First edition. Folio, unpaged, over 70 full-page gravure printed b&w photos. Black cloth, titled in white with printed dust jacket, with the printed portion of the obi (wraparound band) laid -in. Aside from the neat signature of Alan Winer, photographer and former administrator of the Visual Studies Workshop, this is a fine copy in publisher's slipcase which has a few scrapes to the surface. Item #50764
Human bodies in closely framed and brilliantly lit abstractions. Printed in the photogravure process to accentuate the contrast of skin tones. A beautifully conceived and executed body of work.
