Glazed paper over boards in dust jacket. Original printed bellyband and acetate protector. Black-and-white reproductions with one double-gatefold. Texts in Japanese and English. Glassine protector.

The 9th in this influential series from Chuo koron-sha. Yokosuka began his career as a commercial photographer. After studying photography at Japan University, he started working for Shiseido's corporate magazine "House Organ", receiving much recognition for his innovative approaches to advertising. He was a member of the group Workshop, which also included Araki, Tomatsu, Hosoe, and Moriyama. One of the many short-lived collaboratives that coalesced in advanced photography circles in Japan in the late sixties and seventies, the group taught classes and published an eponymous journal from late 1974 to 1976.
Yokosuka had an unusual interest in the magic of light and the human physique. Aside form his private work Yokosuka also produced work for Shiseido, Vogue and Issey Miyake's 'East Meet West' project.

A clean, tight copy with no foxing; board just a bit splayed; some fading to jacket and bellyband near spine; Fine/Fine-.
