Horino Masao (1907-1999) was possibly the most important proponent of the 'shinko shashin' movement. Clearly influenced by European Modernist photographers like Moholy-Nagy and the Bauhaus group, Horino explored the functional aesthetic of machines and architecture. The present work, written by Itagaki Takao (1894-1966), represents the fundamental interpretation of modernism in Japan. The plates show examples of modernist architecture and includes photographs by Man Ray, Biermann, Werthoff, and Richter. Very rare. 3 copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
