* Masaaki MORIYA "NGS AMC Portfolio: 20 Years Old Memento " 2002 Photobook


Availability: Out of stock

Masaaki MORIYA, photographer. “AMC Artman Club VIP Members Edition Portfolio Series: 20 Years Old Memento” Japan: Nippon Geijutsu Shuppan (NGS), 2002, First Edition, custom folio, 24 heavy-stock loose-sheet glossy color prints with cover sheet in a folder, 31 x 22 cm.

NGS Artman Club publications were available by subscription only - not in bookstores - this allowed them to circumvent Japanese censorship standards. The private publications of the Artman Club had a penchant for models and settings similar to those of David Hamilton, Jacques Bourboulon and other European favorites like Otto Weisser, Siwer Ohlsson, Jacques Alexandre, Jean-Pierre Bourgeois and Michel Moreau with sun-drenched Mediterranean settings and limbs-akimbo poses.

Very Rare - First time I've seen this one. Unusual - kind of Henri Maccheroni meets Akira Gomi. Each prints contrasts a fairly innocuous snapshot with a very intimate image of the same model. Actually the photographer is uncredited but long time AMC/NGS/KPC contributor Moriya is now newly credited as the publisher so I am assuming he is the most likely suspect.

Condition: Excellent.
