        The Solitude of Ravens. With 62 b/w reproductions.

      (Lacks the slip-case, else fine.) One of 1000 copies printed. Photographs by Masahisa Fukase (25 February 1934 - 9 June 2012). Afterword by Akira Hasegawa, in Japanese and English. "The solitude revealed in this collection of images is sometimes so painful that we want to avert our eyes from it. (...) But his photographs possess the artistry to make artistic works even out of hell" (Hasegawa)."Arguably the post-Provoke masterpiece of Japanese photobooks, (...) The imagery is beautiful, surprising, haunting, but ultimately it is Fukase's masterly handling of the narrative and rhythm that makes it so memorable. (...) Even though Fukase made his pictures in bad light and bad weather, never bothering with technical niceties, the results are both luminous and beautiful" (Parr & Badger: "The Photobook. A History", vol. I, p. 306)."Masahisa Fukase (25 February 1934 - 9 June 2012) was a Japanese photographer, celebrated for his work depicting his domestic life with his wife Yoko Wanibe and his regular visits to his parents' small-town photo studio in Hokkaido. He is best known for his 1986 book Karasu (Ravens or The Solitude of Ravens), which in 2010 was selected by the British Journal of Photography as the best photobook published between 1986 and 2009. Since his death in 2012 there has been a revival of interest in Fukase's photography, with new books and exhibitions appearing that emphasize the breadth and originality of his art." (wikipedia).The best edition. - Dritte Ausgabe. Schwarzer Original-Leinwandband. Eins von nur 1000 Exemplaren. Mit einem Nachwort von Akira Hasegawa in Japanisch und Englisch. Sehr gut erhalten, jedoch ohne den Pappschuber. Die am besten gedruckte Ausgabe! - RFM - Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage oder auf unserer Homepage.
