Akira GOMI "Yellows 1.0 1991" 1999 Photobook Rena MURAKAMI


Availability: Out of stock

Akira GOMI, photographer. "Yellows 1.0 1991." Japan: Bunkasha, 1999, First Edition, HB, dj, 31 x 24 cm, ca. 130 pages, b/w photos.

Gomi's first Yellows photos, 1989-91, finally published completely in 1999. Here are the beginnings of Gomi's deadpan-nude style, seen in 1.0 Americans, 2.0 Tokyo and 3.0 China. In Gomi's first photos, there are fewer poses - front, back, upper torso and facial. Includes Gomi's images of the yet-to-be-famous actress Rena MURAKAMI.

"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 - blood type, sitting height, education, age, favorite food, motto, foot size, questions about sexuality, reason for posing nude - 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
