Kishin Shinoyama - A Fine Day (篠山 紀信 - 晴れた日), Heibon-Sha, 1977, Tokyo

 

Hardcover with printed acetate dust jacket in publisher’s slipcase, design by Shoji Kamegai.

"A fascinating early book by Kishin Shinoyama, who has become one of Japan's best-known commercial photographers… Shinoyama's book consists of 23 photographic sequences of around 10 photographs each… They range from studio portraits of Japanese women to landscapes in which the weather features prominently, to images of such figures as Richard Nixon. The element linking the images turns out to be the fact that each sequence comments on a different event that took place in 1974… There seems to be no real link between the events depicted here except that they were chosen. The same may be said of the photographs themselves. The primary link between them was not that Shinoyama took them, but that he included them in this baffling, hypnotic book" (Parr & Badger, The Photobook: A History - Volume I)
