About this Item: Condition: Wie neu. Sokyu-Sha, Tokyo. 2007. First edition, first printing. Signed by Tomoyuki Sakaguchi! Mint, new, unread; only opened once for signature! Selected as one of Martin Parr`s best books of 2000-2010! Hardcover without jacket (as issued). 310 x 230 mm. "What a concept: Imagine if you could see as clearly and in as much detail at midnight as you can at noon. The desire for night vision is an old one, but frankly the visions provided by new technologies have not impressed me - the best I`ve experienced were a set of cumbersome electric goggles that yielded greenish, ghostlike images. Much better are the serene nocturnal views in the new body of work by Japanese photographer Tomoyuki Sakaguchi." (Monty DiPietro, Japan Times ) "I first saw Tomoyuki Sakaguchi`s images of suburban Tokyo when I was in my third year of a photography BA and something of a transparency film snob. Everything had to be film, and the only purpose of digital was quick and dirty snapshots. Sakaguchi?s work was the catalyst that suddenly pointed out that fine art photography is not strictly the reserve of film. The appeal of Sakaguchi`s series Home is, for me, how effectively it marries the "look" of digital photography to the content of the series. The strange quality of light and the unnatural saturation and tonality of the greenery have a uniquely digital aesthetic. This glossy plasticity is at odds with an American photographer whose work provides an interesting counterpoint. Todd Hido`s large format series Homes at Night embodies everything Sakaguchi`s work eschews. Where Homes at Night is dark, subdued and atmospheric, Home is vibrant and saturated. Hido`s images are stuck in the past, whereas Sakaguchi?s are unashamedly modern. We need only look at the cars in Sakaguchi`s images to confirm this. They are brightly coloured, compact, utilitarian. They are also, in a very real sense, the main characters in this odd little nocturnal drama. They occupy each image with surprising presence and vitality, providing a link to the sleeping residents of each home." (Silas Dominey)***************Sokyu-Sha, Tokyo. 2007. Japanische Erstausgabe.
