Narcotic Photographic Document
Tokyo: Inoue Shoten 1963 - First Edition. Quarto. A book by photojournalist Kazuo Kenmochi, likely his first, that details drug culture in Japan in the early 60s: from production, to distribution, addiction and finally incarceration. The images are crisp, stark, frightening and intimate, all traits one might associate with Larry Clark or Nan Goldin, yet Kenmochi's intention was pure documentary. Predating Araki and Moriyama, this arresting work has remained under the radar until recently. Near fine in a near fine jacket, very good publisher's card slipcase, rubbed at the extremities; lacking the scarce obi. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
