"In the series, the photographers, through some close connection between photographer and subject, created images in an attempt to reveal something private. The nudes were not only a study but the by-product of an apparent intimate connection between photographer and model. This was a switch from the "nude" to the "naked"."--Kaneko & Vartanian, Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 70s.

Condition: Very Good. Minimal handling creases, nice cover and interior, back cover and last few pages are a bit dog-eared. Still, better than usual.
