Availability: Out of stock

Ryudai TAKANO, photographer. "Takano Ryudai 1993-1996." Mariko TAKEUCHI, essay. Japan: Sokyu-sha, 2006, First Edition, HB, 20 cm x 21 cm, 76 pp, 31 b/w photos, text in English & Japanese, Limited Edition of 700 numbered copies.

Takano’s recent Exhibition attracted the attention of the Japanese authorities who raided the Museum and forced the staff to cover a number of his artworks with drapes. Public attention, infamy and artistic indignation aside, Takano, winner of the prestigious 2006 Kimura Ihei Photographer Prize, is one of Japan’s most talented and uncompromising photographers. This limited edition photobook contains murky images of intertwined bodies that are an homage to Eikoh Hosoe’s Man and Woman, Embrace and Human Body though other more baroque sources also come to mind.

Condition: Very Good, stamped #444/700 and SIGNED by Takano.
