Availability: Out of stock

Kikuji KAWADA, photographer. “The Last Cosmology.” Japan: 491 (self-published?), 1995, First Edition, PB, (no dj as issued), 42 cm x 30 cm, 48 pp, b/w photos.

"Kawada is best known for The Map (Chizu), his 1965 tour de force that appears on almost all lists of the most important photobooks ever. Just as in The Map, the images in this lushly printed 1995 book display a similar tension between an earthbound naturalism and a richly associative abstraction. An amateur astronomer, Kawada's gaze has always been drawn to the heavens. With celestial phenomena as his subject The Last Cosmology pursues even further than in The Map the metaphysical tendencies in his work. An excellent book!"--Photo-eye.

Condition: Good, some of the usual handling creases for this oversize soft cover publication.
