€325.00
Black and white images by photographer Kanendo Watanabe shot in a unique, spare style, that has more in common with the New Topographics photographers than Japanese influences. Aperture reference. (Aperture 228-231).
 
Reminiscent of the austere, minimalist style of New Topographics photographers (Lewis Baltz, Robert Adams, Joe Deal, etc..)-- but with atmospherics that are distinctly Surreal. As Vartanian and Kaneko describe in Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 1970s, Mieko Kanai's opening text is typical of the "i-novel" genre, in which narrative is based on the everyday life of the writer. But is also "very close in feel to Andre Breton's 1928 surrealist novel, Nadja...[the images] [evoke] the feeling of being lost in an unfamiliar town." Winner of the 1981 Ihei Kimura Prize. Only one copy in OCLC--in Japan.
