Availability: Out of stock

Bunyo ISHIKAWA, photographer. “Shashin kiroku Betonamu senso” - "Vietnam War Through a Photographer's Eyes." Japan: Suzusawashoten, 1980, First Edition, HB, (no dj as issued), original photo-decorated boards slipcase, outer cardboard slipcase with paper label, 35 x 28 cm, 494 pp, b/w & color photos, text in Japanese & English.

"Among the most hard-hitting and graphic collections of Vietnam era photojournalism... a searing indictment of Western intentions."--Photo-eye

A companion to Ishikawa's famed "Chien Tranh Giai Phong Viet Nam" 1977 photobook - same size, format and design. Bunyo Ishikawa was one of the most important photographers who documented the Vietnam war, winner of numerous awards including the Photographic Society of Japan Award, the Japan Magazine Photographers Association Award and the Japan Journalist Conference Special Award. Woefully under-appreciated in the West - but this should change with his inclusion in Parr and Badger's The Photobook: A History, Volume 3.

Condition: Excellent, solid book with clean interior pages.
