Lyu HANABUSA + Mariko KAWANA "Satisfaction " 2002 Photobook


Availability: Out of stock

Lyu HANABUSA, photographer. "Satisfaction." Mariko KAWANA, model. Japan: Eichi Shuppan, 2002, First Edition, HB, dj, 25 x 26 cm, Approx. 100 pp, color and b/w 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 may be Hanabusa's most extreme model monograph - more similar to the exciting nude model photobooks of Kishin Shinoyama and Hajime Sawatari than his usual elegant hommages to Jonvelle and Sieff.
