Availability: Out of stock

Yoshi-ichi HARA, photographer. "Shokujo Roku" - "Record of Women" Japan: 1983, First Edition, HB, dj, 30 cm x 22 cm, approx. 100 pp, b/w photos.

Great photography and social history, something of an early version of Nobuyoshi Araki's "Tokyo Lucky Hole." A fascinating record of women working in Japan's sex industry. Most of these photos were taken during the 1970's. A cult figure, Hara dedicated his art to documenting the lives of showgirls, bargirls and prostitutes - preparing for work, at work, after work - backstage, on stage, at home and at leisure.

Condition: Good, dj has wear at the top edge.
