* Akira GOMI "ShINC #1" 1990 Photobook Rena MURAKAMI Aya MIZUKI


Availability: Out of stock

Akira GOMI, photographer. "ShINC, Volume 1." Rena MURAKAMI, Aya MIZUKI, models. Japan: ShINC, 1990, First Edition, PB, (no dj as issued), 36 x 26 cm, 16 pp, b/w photos, essay, "The Yellow Body" by Shinichi NAKAZAWA.

Very rare - Akira Gomi's first publication - before his first photobooks, Nude of J, Yellows 2.0 Tokyo, Americans 1.0 Los Angeles, Yellows 3.0 China. And Rena MURAKAMI's first publication as well, when she was still mostly an amateur model - she later went on to a big career as an AV actress. This oversized pamphlet is really an advertisement for original prints of the photos - the tipped-in order card is still inside.

"Arising from Akira Gomi's nearly obsessional documentation of body-types, his Post-Modern approach to the concept of "types" combines an ironic catalog of data... with deadpan, but amusing nudes. What can we tell from a naked body, its form, posture, and expression, and what do we project? Yellows is a brilliant exploration of the non-sexual nude..."--Photo-eye
