“'Mt. Fuji'... 'Sword'... 'Noh'... 'Courtesan'... 'Sumo'... and 'Samurai'... All of these subjects gathered here are representative of the clichés with which Japan was once spoken of... What is ambivalent here is not merely the manner of selecting the subjects. Clearly apparent within the actual composition of the photography of nature and man, within the texture of the photographic surface, are the photographer's affection for and irritation at the objects.” (Essay: 'The Soul of a Young Japanese' by Yamazaki Masakazu). Very much a product of the '70s. Works 064. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
