"Eikoh Hosoe’s unique photographic aesthetics have won high praise internationally for half a century long. The series Embrace (1971) has been regarded as a work which succeeded in extracting the essence of life and sophisticatedly abstracting human bodies. The series Ordeal by Roses (1963) featured the novelist, Yukio Mishima, as the subject, and it became one of Hosoe’s best known works as well as one of the most important works within the Japan’s post-war history of photography."--publisher
