Nude - Kishin Shinoyama
First edition. Folio. Thick card wrappers. 64pp. Illustrated with full-bleed photographs in colour and b&w. Japanese and English text. Tokyo: Camera Mainichi, 1970.
Wrappers a little dirty at edges and endpapers a little foxed.
Iconic photobook presenting six panoramic shoots from 1969 (only one year after Shinoyama began working as an independent photographer). Shinoyama's highly ambitious studies locate the nude as a sculptural form often depicted in relation to landscape and city architecture. Here the book travels from the terrain of Death Valley and closes in Tokyo.
