Book Description Seven Sha, Tokyo, 1980. Softcover. Book Condition: g. First edition. Quarto. Unpaginated. [114]pp. Original photographic dust-jacket over stiff wraps. A controversial volume of 74 photographs taken by Japanese photographer Kohei Yoshiyuki, who, using a 35mm camera, infrared film, and flash, documented people who gathered in several of Tokyo's parks at night for romantic rendezvous and the many spectators that lurked in the bushes to watch and sometimes participate. The photos are raw, voyeuristic and uncomfortable. Photographer Martin Parr commented that they perfectly capture "the loneliness, sadness, and desperation that so often accompany sexual or human relationships in a big, hard metropolis like Tokyo." True first edition with red bellyband / obi. Upper edge of dust-jacket partly creased and chipped. Minor rubbing along edges. Text in Japanese. Dust-jacket in overall good- to good, wraps in good, interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 32035

Book Description Seven Sha, Tokyo, 1980. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. This is a first edition, first printing of Kohei Yoshiyuki¿s critically acclaimed Document Koen (Document Park) published by Seven Sha, Tokyo, Japan in 1980. Yoshiyuki was a young commercial photographer in Tokyo in the early 1970s when he and a colleague walked through Chuo Park in Shinjuku one night. He noticed a couple on the ground, and then one man creeping toward them, followed by another. I had my camera, but it was dark, he told the photographer Nobuyoshi Araki in a 1979 interview for a Japanese publication. Researching the technology in the era before infrared flash units, he found that Kodak made infrared flashbulbs. Mr. Yoshiyuki returned to the park, and to two others in Tokyo, through the 70s. He photographed heterosexual and homosexual couples engaged in sexual activity and the peeping toms who stalked them. Measuring approximately 11 x 8 inches, the book is bound in photographically illustrated wraps with a thin glassine dust jacket. Both the book and dust jacket are in FINE condition.
