Nobuyoshi Araki - Young Ladies in Bathing Suits 水着のヤングレディたち / 複写集団ゲリバラ5 その2, Fukushu-Shudan, Geribara-5, 1971, Tokyo

 

Softcover.

The second provocative book in a trilogy published by Geribara 5, a small avant-garde collective formed following the dissolution of the Provoke group. Group consited of: Nobuyoshi Araki, Yoshio Takase, Koji Yaehata, Naohosia Tabogami, Fukuo Ikeda and Tomoko Kamiguchi (Miss Geribara).

"Mizugi no Yangu Redii-Tachi (Young Ladies in Bathing Suits), is equally controversial [as Benjo (Toilet), the Geribara 5's first book]. It is a strictly Conceptual book, each page containing a trio of three-quarter-length portraits of teenage girls on the beach, the majority posing somewhat self-consciously for the camera. The sheer repetitiveness of these bland images tells us much about the homogeneity of teenage culture, but that is not the controversial aspect. Beneath [or above] each photograph is the girl's address and telephone number, printed in facsimile handwriting. The inevitable invasion of privacy inherent in the process of taking and publishing pictures is one thing. If the personal details...were valid [which, according to Araki, approximately one-half were], the book raises issues that go beyond imagistic representation into areas verging on abuse and sexual harassment." (The Photobook: A History, Volume I" by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger)
