Lyu HANABUSA "Lazy Fish" 1998


Availability: Out of stock

Lyu HANABUSA, photographer. "Lazy Fish."  Japan: Shinchosha, 1998, First Edition, HB, dj, obi, 25 x 26 cm, Approx. 120 pp, b/w photos.  Unlike many of Hanabusa's books which feature photos in Sieff/Jonvelle style with beautiful European models in elegant manor surroundings - this one transports the models to the beach without any props or clothing of any kind. The voluptuous models, the sand, the rocks, the water, the black and white photography - this book could be an homage to the great photos of Andre de Dienes from the 1950's. A beautiful book - very highly recommended. Never reprinted or published outside of Japan.  Lyu Hanabusa Biography: Born 1949, Osaka, Japan.
