From the publisher:

"ABCD is a facsimile of Araki’s four over-sized notebooks lettered thus, which house enlarged contact prints from 94 rolls of film made by him in the early '70s; each is numbered and sequenced in chronological order.

The developer used to develop these negatives was over-heated, causing the emulsion to reticulate and break apart in random fashion. The physical, degenerative effect on the images, lends itself to existential interpretation as if they had survived the blast. The reservoir of images is extracted from everyday life and in essence chronicles Araki’s experience. There is little epiphany in the interpretation of subject matter, shifting from generic urban landscape to sexual acts. The marriage of the mundane and the erotic is at the core of Araki’s canon and here, in 1972, he is laying the conceptual foundation for all future work."
