"The years 1965-1975 were a period of extraordinary turbulence and transformation in Japan. Rapid economic growth saw profound changes in the countrys social, political and urban structure, and an explosion of artistic creativity. Japanese photography also underwent changes since the post-war years, exemplified by the nine photographers selected here. No longer focused on the nation or collective, artists like Taiji Arita, Eikoh Hosoe, Daido Moriyama, Masatoshi Naito, Hajime Sawatari, Issei Suda, Yoshihiro Tatsuki, Shuji Terayama and Katsumi Watanabe sought to portray the individual within society. Includes critical essays by Noi Sawaragi and Marc Feustel." (publisher's note)

The photographer and her series:
Taiji Arita - First Born (from late 60s to early 70s)
Eikoh Hosoe - Simmon: A Private Landscape (1971)
Daido Moriyama - Farewell Photography (1969 - 71)
Masatoshi Naito - Tokyo (1970 - 1985)
Hajime Sawatari - Kinky (1968 - 1970)
Issei Suda - My Tokyo 100 / Waga 100 (1976 - 1978)
Yoshihiro Tatsuki - 'A Fallen Angel' (1965)
Shuji Terayama - 'Mysterious Guests' (1974 - 1976)
Katsumi Watanabe - Story of the Shinjuku Thieves (1965 - 1973)

Eine wunderbare Ergänzung zur Japanischen Fotobuchsammlung und (für mich) die Möglichkeit, Neuentdeckungen zu machen, wie z.B. Masatoshi Naitos Serie 'Tokyo' oder Hajime Sawataris Serie 'Kinky'.

In der Publikation, gibt Akio Nafasawa, der die gleichnamige Ausstellung in Japan kuratiert hat, einen tollen Überblick über die Vielfalt der Japanischen Fotografie der späten 60er, über die 70er bis in die 80er Jahre.
