Hardcover, with obi and acetate jacket, from the Eizo no Gendai series - "a sort of canon for contemporary Japanese photography of the time" (Kaneko & Vartanian, p. 14, 20-21). Included in the series were seminal books by Ikko Narahara, Yoshihiro Tatsuki, Shoji Ueda, Masahisa Fukase, Shomei Tomatsu, Haruo Tmiyama, Akira Sato, Yasuhiro Ishimoto and Daido Moriyama.

"The 9th in this influential series from Chuo koron-sha. Yokosuka began his career as a commercial photographer. After studying photography at Japan University, he started working for Shiseido's corporate magazine "House Organ", receiving much recognition for his innovative approaches to advertising. He was a member of the group Workshop, which also included Araki, Tomatsu, Hosoe, and Moriyama. One of the many short-lived collaboratives that coalesced in advanced photography circles in Japan in the late sixties and seventies, the group taught classes and published an eponymous journal from late 1974 to 1976. Yokosuka had an unusual interest in the magic of light and the human physique. Aside from his private work Yokosuka also produced work for Shiseido, Vogue and Issey Miyake's 'East Meet West' project." (Photo-Eye
"Here, the photographer turned his studio into an unreal space with infinite horizons, in which nude dancers with supple, elastic bodies that enabled them to perform a seemingly impossible variety of movements and postures moved around and were modeled by precise lighting effects. Some clung to the walls like spiders, while others leapt frenetically, or played at adopting strange poses." (Bertolotti, Books of Nudes, p. 166-167 - the cover of which is a photo from this book)
