Japanese Out-of-Print Photography Books of the 60's and the 70's ...

Photography is still 'on trial' (A.Stieglitz): it cannot be called 'an art' in the same sense as existing forms of modern arts. But here are some definite answers given by Japanese photographers of our time in  the printed form of their portfolios.  Page by page, your eyes and mind will trace the 'time space' fixed and preserved by those 'hunters' of the light.

  Stock Sample: WHERE TIME HAS VANISHED  

  Stock Sample: RAVENS    

<INTRODUCTION TO OUR STOCK LISTS>

Our selections are sharply targeted at and divided into the following categories, and mainly cover 1960 - 1980
periods, in which Japanese society has been also involved in the matters of political controversies over the U.S.
War in Vietnam and U.S.- Japan Military Treaty, alongside with all those problems after W.W.II, like still
aching victims of the atomic bombs in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and KOGAI (environmental pollutions) all around
this small island country. Our photographic heroes have lived through under those periods of time and faced each
individual occurrences of their everyday lives. Remembering such basic facts, we cannot give any doubts and
objections about their outstanding efforts, enthusiasm on photography, and given talents on creativity. (GJ*)
