Synopsis: In an inconspicuous wooden box that had long gone unopened, Akimitsu Naruyama discovered 365 photographs of people with congenital and pathological deformations. After looking at just a few pictures, the Japanese art dealer and collector knew that he had discovered an extraordinary collection of photographs. ~A doctor and photography enthusiast, Ikkaku Ochi practiced his profession in Okayama, a prefecture of Shikoku, one of Japan's southern islands. He had his patients photographed during the last decade of the 19th century, producing images that are strikingly distinct from contemporary medical photographs, which serve as mere educational material and rarely as sensitive portraits of the diseased. Ochi's patients were recorded with dignity and respect, though the exposed, diseased parts of their bodies are explicitly documented and not for the squeamish. Individual photographs reveal the physical manifestations of syphilis in its final stages, elephantiasis of the testes or breasts, and other medical conditions--conditions that today are almost completely suppressed by medication or vaccination.~Cruel and melancholic, these photographs seen today possess an undeniable elegance and uncomfortable beauty, qualities that Akimitsu Naruyama recognized immediately when he opened that forgotten wooden box. Edited by Akimitsu Naruyama. Hardcover, 11 x 12 in./300 pgs / 0 color 0 BW0 duotone 185 Tritone~ Item D20312

Review: ... these images of congenital and pathological deformities nonetheless convey a haunting sense of dignity and melancholia. -- Flash Art

Book Description SCALO, 2005. Couverture rigide. Book Condition: Neuf. Dust Jacket Condition: Neuf. "The historical value of this collection of medical photographs is extraordinary. The sheer number of these photographs from a medical faculty affiliated with a hospital in the province at the end of the 19th century is astounding, as is the fact that they were taken by a professional photographer and have survived to this day." Sumio Ishida "The disapperance of many diseases is certainly a pleasant development. (.) I hope that the reader will be moved by a sadness as intense as the one I felt when I first looked at them." Akimitsy Naruyama Cette ahurissante collection de photographies datant de l'ère Meiji (1868-1911) fut découverte par le collectionneur Akimitsu Naruyama : elle rassemblait, dans une caisse en bois de la taille d'une boîte à chaussures, 365 clichés des plus épouvantables malformations et tumeurs constatées par la faculté de médecine de Kyoto. Plus de 200 d'entre elles étaient signées au dos par le docteur Ikkaku Ochi (1875-1930). Sont ici réunies, à pleine page pour la plupart, 136 photographies dues au docteur OCHI. -The Collection of Dr. Ikkaku Ochi par Anna von SENGER -The Box par Akimitsu NARUYAMA -History par Sumio ISHIDA .16 pages Cartonnage beige, jaquette illustrée -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Auteur(s) : Akimitsu Naruyama Editeur(s) : Zurich, Scalo Date de parution : 2004 Langue(s) principale(s) : ALLEMAND/ANGLAIS Dimensions : 12,5 x 20,5 cm.
