images may be added again at some stage - too many images "stolen" and used uncredited without any notice. Will rethink the whole project - password protected access may be an option, paid subscribing another or taking it completly offline also thinkable. But still undecided...

„Kurata won the fifth Kimura Ihei Award in 1980 for his first book, Flash Up. For the black-and-white photographs here, Kurata used flash and a medium format camera, resulting in a detailed portrait of a world of bōsōzoku, gangsters, rightists, strippers, transvestites, and so on: as Parr and Badger point out, these are old subjects; but in his "highly polished, detailed" work, Kurata "has an unerring instinct for pictures that suggest stories" (Wikipedia)
