A book illustrated with black-and-white photographs of the female nude. "Nakamura was bornin 1926 and became a professional photographer only after the war. He worked first as a news cameraman and then took up portrait and fashion photography before specializing in nude photography. For all his lack of years, heis now regarded as one of the leaders in his field. The popularity of his nude works is probably largely due to the rare freshness of his approach. Before Nakamura appeared, nude photography in Japan was still almost exclusively cast in the mold set by Weston. Another reason for the appeal of his works is that Nakamura is the first Japanese photographer with the skill, taste sensibility that could combine with artistic creativeness to produce a healthy dynamism and sensual grace that appeal immediately to the imagination. His works contrast strongly with the many unimaginative, unartistic andtechnically poor nude studies that had appeared before his rise to fame. Nakamura today enjoys a first-class reputation not only in Japan but overseas. His artistry. skill, taste and imagination mark him as one of the top artists in nude photography." (Koen Shigemori). Book cracked centrally at gutter, some wrinkling to leaves, else very good in spine-worn and chipped dustjacket. 60.00. Bookseller Inventory #
