This is not the first collection of Kageyama's work: Ten years before Yukeisha had published a booklet of his photographs entitled "Aru hodo shashinka no mita Showa 30-nen shi" [Thirty Years of the Showa Era as Viewed by a Photographer]. However that publication was more an illustrated history than a photography-book. In terms of presentation this is a great improvement on the previous publication and the same can be said for the subject matter: While retaining the chronological approach the focus on the female side of history makes for a much more gentle and refined product. Kageyama's images clearly go beyond photojournalism - in many ways they anticipate the documentary realism of the post-war era. Five copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
