Kishin SHINOYAMA "Arabia" 1977 Photobook


Availability: Out of stock

Kishin SHINOYAMA, photographer. "Arabia." Shoichiro SHIWACHI, commentary. Shozo TSURUMOTO, art direction. Japan: PHP Institute, 1976, First edition, HB, slipcase, 35 x 27 cm, 146 pp, 62 double-page and 8 single-page color photos, text in Japanese.

A precursor to Shinoyama's monumental "Silk Road" series, the genesis for that work is seen here - grand visions of exotic locales and people in saturated color on unusually large double-page spreads. Though unfairly neglected, "Arabia" is a companion piece to Shinoyama's highly respected "Paris" - published in the same year and sharing similar format, design and even the same price. "Arabia" displays Shinoyama's usual effortless virtuosity and cinematic sequencing.

Condition: Book is Very Good, slipcase has some wear around the edges.
