Lyu HANABUSA + Mai GOTO "Risky" 1999 Photobook


Availability: Out of stock

Lyu HANABUSA, photographer. "Risky" Mai GOTO, model. Japan: Bunkasha, 1999, First Edition, HB, dj, 31 x 23 cm, Approx. 90 pp, color photos.

Hanabusa splits his time between Japan and France. In France he creates images reminiscent of the great French photographers, Jeanloup Sieff and Jean-Francois Jonvelle with European models and settings. In Japan, like many Japanese photographers, he pays the bills with vibrant photography of nude models and actresses. This book has photos in the Sieff/Jonvelle style with beautiful European models in elegant manor surroundings.

This model is not known for her subtlety so in this one Hanabusa's customary elegance takes a back seat to direct, raw, stiletto-healed, oiled-down eroticism. Very similar to the exciting model photo books of Hajime Sawatari.
