Photographs by Kenshu Shintsubo.
Foil, Japan, 2006. In English and Japanese. 124 pp., Numerous illustrations throughout, 7¼x10¼".
Photographer Kenshu Shintsubo’s work is featured in magazines throughout Japan. His
book Kioku portrays four young Japanese teen idols dressed in school uniforms. In
Japanese culture, the school uniform is seen as a symbol of innocence as well as
repressed desire. The portraits of these girls, Erika Toda, Yu Kashii, hanae and Aoi
Miyazaki, evoke the preciousness of such innocence and an underlying fetishism.
