Shomei Tomatsu - Photobook 2: Homes, Drifted, Asphalt, Osorezan, etc - 東松照明 写真集2 家・吹きだまり・アスファルト・恐山他, Shashin Dojinsha, 1967, Tokyo

 

Hardcover.

In 1966, photographer Shomei Tomatsu (1930-2012) published his first individual book Shomei Tomatsu Photobook 1 <11:02> Nagasaki with Shashin Dojinsha.
According to the promotional flyer of the publication at that time, a total of 4 volumes were going to be published respectively under the titles <11:02> Nagasaki, Osorezan, Chiho Seijika, Ie...Hoka [Osorezan, Countryside Politicians, Homes, etc.], Senryo [Occupation], and Shiro, Korekushon, Daiyohin...Hoka [Castles, Collections, Substitutes, etc.]. However, as the first volume <11:02> Nagasaki did not sell well and Shashin Dojinsha went bankrupt immediately after the publication, the remaining three volumes were unrealized. After the bankruptcy, Tomatsu recovered the unsold copies of <11:02> Nagasaki and launched his own publishing company Shaken, from which his books <11:02> Nagasaki (Shaken edition), Nippon, Saramu Areikomu [Assalamu Alaykum], and Oh! Shinjuku were subsequently published about one book per year.

There are 11 works that are included only in Shomei Tomatsu Photobook 2, which means that those 11 works are his unpublished works - shown as the last 9 slides in the slideshow.
