Endless Night. Photographs by Miyako Ishiuchi. Asahi Sonorama, Tokyo, 1981. Unpaged. Quarto. First edition. Stiff photo-illustrated wrappers. Cardboard slipcase with printed label. Black-and-white reproductions.
"Endless Night" presents interior views of a decrepit apartment house, the former home to drifters and prostitutes in search of a temporary place-to-be. In this series, we see the beginnings of a rigorous attention to the formal geometry of space, and to 'absent-presence' within.
