Availability: Out of stock

Takeji IWAMIYA, photographer. "Sonorama Photobook Series 2: Sado” - “Sonorama Shashin Sensho 2: Sado." Akira Hasegawa, essay. Japan: Asahi Sonorama, 1977, First Edition, First Printing, HB, dj, as issued, 21 cm x 22 cm, 120 pp, b/w photos.

"Iwamiya is probably best known as one of Daido Moriyama's teachers. However, as a documentarian of traditional Japanese culture and craft--gardens, temples, sculptures, and the like--he has virtually no equal... Iwamiya's images of the isolated island of Sado focus on the unusually harsh conditions endured by the people who live there. With a haunting and melancholy tone, they brilliantly convey the simplicity of life there and the appearance of both natural and traditionally crafted objects."--Photo-eye.

Condition: Book is excellent, unusually bright with none of the soiling, toning or foxing spots often seen in books from this series. The best copy I have ever seen. Lately, one of the rarest from the series.
