Softcover with French flaps, lay flat binding. Printrun of 500 copies, design by Damien Sans (Lieutenant Willsdorff), text by Kazuma Ogaeri (French/English/Japanese).

Moso operates a subtle shift in the world around us to a universe full of sexual tension which is both powerful and delicate, like suspended: a distortion from the fantasies and the eye of the photographer.
There is in this book something about the refined and fixed aesthetics from Japanese movies like Shokuzai by Kiyoshi Kurosawa or Le Labyrinthe des Rêves by Sogo Ishii, something about the ethereal slip to a parallel world that almost always operates in the literature of Haruki Murakami, or even more to the nostalgia and childhood memories anchored and deformed by the emerging sexual impulses as in the manga Mirages d'été 「枇杷の樹の下で」 by Kazu Yuzuki; finally, there is something about the empathy for the submitted and violated bodies from some Kōji Wakamatsu's films and something about Araki's fetishism and obsession for women.
Also, the pervasive, sensual and soothing nature.
Moso poetically explores the traditional representations of the Japanese eroticism in four chapters: 少女 the girl – 自然 the nature – 鉄道 the train – 女性 the woman.
