Masahisa Fukase - Karasu (The Solitude of Ravens) 深瀬昌久『鴉』, Rat Hole Gallery, 2008, Tokyo

 

Hardcover, cloth bound in slipcase.

 “Even though Fukase made his pictures in bad light and bad weather, never bothering with technical niceties, the results are both luminous and beautiful. ... He enlarges tiny portions of his negatives, pushing for the limits of legibility. One climatic image of silhouetted birds in formation, wings outstretched against a grainy sky, metamorphoses into a wire news service image of overheard warplanes, a significant, and traumatic image for postwar Japan.” (From: The Photobook: A History, Volume 1, by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger)
