Availability: Out of stock

Nobuyuki WAKABAYASHI, photogapher. "Ah, Tobidashita Onnatachi" - "Oh! Girls Jumping Out." Japan: 1971, 1st Edition, PB, b/w photos.

Wakabayashi's "Adam and Eve" from 1970 is referenced in Bertolotti, Books of Nudes, p 168-169. This one may be even rarer - certainly more fun.

“The violent contrast of photographic values and the graphic interplay pushed to excess... are intended to signify that the artist rejects all academicism, and demands complete freedom to destroy the known and to create something totally new. This iconoclastic fury had been initiated in the 1950s by the members of Gutai group, who wanted to move beyond figurative representation, whether realist or symbolic. This fury inspired young moviemakers to film rapidly... in order to seize the rage and energy of the moment, and actors and dancers to turn the street into a stage.”--Bertolotti

Condition: Good, some toning around the edges, some handling signs.
