Photobook, one volume, first edition. Numerous photographic illustrations. Japanese text. 8vo. Original decorated cloth in slipcase. Together with an original print by Kimura Ihei.
- Published in: Tokyo-to
Kimura Ihei's second publication. This book covers the formative years in Kimura's career, and it is clear that right from the beginning his focus was on humans, their development, struggles, joys, and relationships. It includes the famous images of a market-day in Naha (Okinawa) as well as photographs that were later used in 'Japanese School Life' (1937) 'The Girls of Japan' (1939), and 'Japan through a Leica' (1939). Detailed technical information is given on each image as well as the location and circumstances of the shot. A real gem, including an original photograph of an unidentified lady holding an opened magazine with a nude picture, that was printed by Koishi Kiyoshi. Extremely rare. Only one copy in OCLC.
