- Oh! Shinjuku おお！新宿
Photobook. First edition.
- Published in: Tokyo-to
“Shinjuku is youth, Shinjuku is underground, Shinjuku is happening, Shinjuku is hip, Shinjuku is sex, Shinjuku is civilization's womb, Shinjuku is crime, Shinjuku is now at the end of the 60s, and at the dawn of the 70s a violent gale is going to blow away your freedom”. (Text on back cover). An honest work full of the intensity of that most vibrant of Tokyo's commercial centres, scene at the end of the 1960 of many, often violent, student protests. The beauty of this work lies as much in what it is as in what it is not. There is a clear political message that is heightened by masterful photographic exploration. Very rare. Only one copy in OCLC.
