Herb RITTS "Kazu" 1995 Photobook


Availability: Out of stock

Herb RITTS, photographer. "Kazu." Kazuyoshi MIURA, model. Japan: Parco, 1995, First Edition, HB, dj, 33 cm x 26 cm, 52 pp, b/w photos.

Published in a small and limited print run for an exhibition. Devoted to the great Japanese athlete, Kazuyoshi Miura, fondly called "Kazu" by his fans. A handsome production in an oversize format. Kazu is a national legend in his native Japan, the first Japanese soccer player to join a European team.

"In keeping with his work on the male nude, this book of Herb Ritts' photographs is a sensual, idealized portrait of one of the world's athletic superstars: Japanese soccer phenomenon Kazu. Japan's star soccer player moved to South America at 16 to learn the game. When he came back, he was a nationwide sensation, putting Japan's J-league on the map for world soccer. Designed by Sam Shahid, who collaborated with Ritts on his book Africa, this book is beautifully printed, continuing Ritts' long-standing reputation for high-quality publications."--Photo-eye
