KURATA, Seiji.
Flash Up: Street Random Tokyo 1975-1979.
First edition. 4to. 190pp with b&w plates in printed wraps with obi. Text in Japanese. Tokyo: Byaku Shobo, 1980.
Wrapper a little shrunk at the top corner. A very good copy.

Seiji Kurata's first photo book and an incredible work in the history of Japanese photography. Here Kurata seeks out the dark side of Tokyo that unflinchingly documents yakuza, youth gangs, gambling dens and street people. The cover image sets the tone with a heavily tattooed yakuza brandishing a samurai sword.
