Yoshiro KOSEKI "Kujukuri-hama" 2004 Photobook 2nd Edition Revised and Expanded


Availability: 1 available

Yoshiro KOSEKI, photographer. "Kujukuri-hama" - "Kujukuri (99 ri) Beach." Japan: Shumpusha, 2004, First Edition, black boards with embossed title, photo decorated slipcase, 31 cm x 22 cm, 288 pp, 208 b/w photos.

A beautiful photo document of a by-gone era - subtitled "umi no ikiru hito bito" - which means something like "the people whose life is the ocean." Kujukuri Beach is Japan's longest beach, named after an ancient unit of measure - 99 ri. This book documents the fading traditional lifestyle of the fishing villages along the beach. There is something about the ocean, islands, fishing villages and 1970s era gravure printing that brought out the best in Japanese photographers. This revised and expanded 2nd edition is gorgeous with outstanding construction and printing. Over twice as many photos as the original edition including far more nudes, for those enamored with traditional Ama fishing women.
