Mikio TOBARA "Document Miseinen" - "Document Teenagers" 1980 Photobook


Availability: Out of stock

MikiO TOBARA, photographer. "Document Miseinen" - "Document Teenagers." Tokyo: Seibunsha (Seven Sha), 1980, PB, 26 x 21 cm, 112 pp, b/w photos.

"A classic document of youthful rebellion - should be included alongside iconic photobooks by Larry Clark (Teenage Lust & Tulsa); Jim Goldberg (Raised by Wolves) and, more recently, Corinne Day (Diary) and Mike Brodie (Period of Juvenile Prosperity) in any collection devoted to 'alienated youth'. Volume 12 in the Seven Mook Magazine series, which has since been made famous by Kohei Yoshiyuki's Document Kouen (which is volume 4). Divided into three sections: the first two devoted to teen sex, prostitution, and smoking, and the third to the bosozoku (bikers' gangs). The rough-grainy-out-of-focus Post-Provoke style here becomes a perfect verité foil for portraying teenage angst and anomie."--Photo-eye
