This career-defining publication not only features Eikoh Hosoe’s major photographic series such as Kamaitachi and Ordeal by Roses but also reveals his lesser-known collaborative works with writers, critics, dancers, and artists, including Yayoi Kusama, in portraiture and beyond. Additionally, the volume includes two newly-commissioned essays offering new perspectives on Hosoe’s oeuvre, alongside reprints of a selection of previously-published seminal essays on Hosoe by a range of Japanese writers, including the novelist Yukio Mishima and the art critic Shuzo Takiguchi. As well as serving as a survey of Hosoe’s work, this book uncovers the essential protagonists of Japanese art, photography, dance, and literature across the post-1945 era.Title: Eikoh Hosoe (English edition)
