"Not all of the nude photography books of this time were subversive, although they were all characterized by the sharply imaginative nature of their images. Many photographers specialized in the glamour genre. One of the most successful was Kira Sugiyama's... which showed photos of frisky young models taken outdoors; these were nice, happy, healthy ingenues, modeled on the pinups of the 1950's, and on photographs by Andre de Dienes taken in France at the same time."--Bertolotti, Books of Nudes, p. 181

"One of Japan's most renowned practitioners of 'classical' nude photography. The lush beach settings and sinuous, 'approachable goddess' poses call to mind both Lucien Clergue and Jock Sturges."--Photo-eye

Condition: Excellent, unbent spine. A gorgeous copy. Also includes an advert with Sugiyama's photography for the resort where the photos were taken.
