“Shinoyama is among Japan's most well known photographers. Hugely successful in the world of advertising from an early age, he went on to produce three stunning books of color photography: A Fine Day (1975); The Meaning of the House (1975) and Paris (1977). However, it is his nudes for which he is most famous. He created a sensation in 1968 when he photographed some of the country's hottest models and entertainers in the nude. By 1969, he was publishing them regularly in Japanese Playboy magazine... The inventive color images explore the beauty of the human form set against a variety of imaginative backdrops.” --Photo-eye
