"From pictorialism to Provoke: the most extensive history of Japanese photobooks ever published" Among others the over 500 pages counting book features such renowned photographers as Yoshio Watanabe, Akira Hoshi, Hayao Yoshikawa, Shinichi Kato, Yasuo Wakuda, Tetsuo Kitahara, Moriyama Daido, Koji Taki, Takuma Nakahira, Yutaka Takanashi, Kimura Ihei, Hamaya, Katura, Kazano, Kikuti, Mituzumi, Watanabe, Yamahata, Sozo Okada and Kazano Karuo, among many others. -- "'The Japanese Photobook, 1912–1980' illustrates the development of photography as seen in photo publications in Japan—from the time of influence by European and American pictorialism, the German Bauhaus and Imperial military propaganda, to the complete collapse and destruction of the country in 1945. Then followed a new beginning: with the unique self-determination of a young generation of photographers and visual artists highlighted by the “Provoke” style as well as protest and war documentation of the late 1950s to the early ’70s, the signature Japanese photobook, as we have come to know it, was born.
With detailed information and illustrations of over 400 photo publications, an introduction by Kaneko Ryuichi and essays by Fujimura Satomi, Duncan Forbes, Manfred Heiting, Mitsuda Yuri, Lizawa Kotaro, Shirayama Mari and Matthew S. Witkovsky, this is the first extensive English-language survey of Japanese photobooks of this period." (publisher's note)

Nach den Bänden 'Imagining Paradise. The Richard and Ronay Menschel Library at George Eastman House', 'Zwischen Wissenschaft und Kunst. 50 Jahre Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie 1951 - 2001', 'Zeitprofile: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie', 'Autopsie. Deutschsprachige Fotobücher 1918 bis 1945' (in zwei Bänden), 'Deutschland im Fotobuch', 'The Soviet Photobook 1920 - 1941' folgt nun ein weiterer Band zum Japanischen Fotobuch. Das Volumen - 516 Seite,n 3.000 Aufnahmen - verspricht schon mal Opulenz; ich bin gespannt, wie der Inhalt sein wird, denn die Liste der beteiligten Fachleute japansicher Fotografie ist lang wie auch die Dauer des beobachteten Zeitraums - vor dem Weltkrieg bis zum Beginn des privaten digitalen Zeitalters.
Es finden sich Bücher und Fotos der bekanntesten Fotografen Japans, u.a.: Yoshio Watanabe, Akira Hoshi, Hayao Yoshikawa, Shinichi Kato, Yasuo Wakuda, Tetsuo Kitahara, Moriyama Daido, Koji Taki, Takuma Nakahira, Yutaka Takanashi, Kimura Ihei, Hamaya, Katura, Kazano, Kikuti, Mituzumi, Watanabe, Yamahata, Sozo Okada and Kazano Karuo
