Nobuyoshi ARAKI "Midori" 1987 Photobook


Availability: Out of stock

Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer. “Midori.” Japan: Tankisha, 1987, Revised Second Edition, PB, 29 cm x 23, 64 pp, 26 b/w images.

“Midori is the name of the beautiful young girl who appears in Higuchi ICHIYO's classic novel 'Takekurabe.' This series of portraits explores the idea that Midori has grown up to work in a massage parlor, transferring the setting from the Meiji period to contemporary Japan."--Kotaro Iizawa, Araki: Self, Life, Death

One of Araki's scarcest books. The original 1982 printing is a fragile one - this printing is sturdier with thicker paper of higher quality. The images are identical to the original edition - the revision is a matter of an additional section of text. Both versions very scarce.

Condition: Excellent.
