Tokiwa Toyoko was born in Yokohama in 1930. After graduating from Tokyo Kasei Gakuin she joined a women's amateur society, the Shirayuri Camera Club. From an early age she was interested in women’s issues and her first solo exhibition at Konishiroku Gallery (1956) showed women in a variety of professions including nude models and women wrestlers. The present book is her first and most famous publication: It documents the conditions in a red-light district close to a U.S. Army base in Yokohama. Tokiwa participated in the prestigious 'Eyes of Ten' exhibition in 1957, and thereafter continued to contribute to a number of important photographic magazines. Only three copies in OCLC.
