"Fukase is best known for the brooding masterpiece Ravens (1983). The twelfth in Hysteric's beautifully produced series of monograph's on contemporary photographers, this book continues Fukase's allusive exploration of the alienation and lonliness at the heart of urban life in Japan."--Photo-eye.

"We grasp the considerably wide connotation of the word 'Hysteric,' and the emotions usually associated with hysteria. However, looking at it in a different light, we can begin to feel the energy in the word 'Hysteric.' The image which comes to mind is that of high tension and taut nerves, and can never be seen as apathetic. Hereafter, we want to make a series of these books with people who firmly believe they have the energy to elevate the feeling of 'Hysteric.' Before long, the concept of 'Hysteric' might be changed."--Nobuhiko Kitamura.

Other legendary Japanese photographers who have contributed volumes to this series include Seiryu Inoue, Takuma Nakahira, Hajime Sawatari and Shoji Ueda.
