Hajime SAWATARI, photographer. "Kinky.” Hiroko ARAHARI, model. Japan: Akio Nagasawa, 2009, First Edition, PB, (no dj as issued), 36 cm x 26 cm, 56 pp, color photos.

Photos from 1968-1969 of the model Hiroko Arahari, who later became Sawatari's wife - and in an unusual way document a courtship. With imagery by turns reminiscent of Sawatari's Alice and Nadia - but only "reminiscent" because these "kinky" photos (in a 1960s groovy-odd sort of way) have not been exhibited until this time. Created before those seminal photobooks, these photos were in fact the germination for the off-kilter through-the-looking-glass visions of Alice and the magical wood-sprite of Nadia. Alice from the Sea is foreshadowed as well.

Condition: Very Good.
