Overview

Black Sun: The Eyes of Four. Photographs by Masahisa Fukase, Eikoh Hosoe, Daido Moriyama, and Shomei Tomatsu. Essays by Mark Holborn. An Unprecedented portrait of postwar Japan through the eyes of four of the nation's most significant photographers. 80 duotone photographs, 9 9/16 X 11 3/8, 80 pages.0

"The three generations of a typical Japanese home have a collective experience that spans the final years of emperor worship and myth, the birth of the nuclear age, and the unprecedented technology of the late twentieth century. These historical factors have influenced Japan's current cultural identity. The photography of Eikoh Hosoe, Shomei Tomatsu, Daido Moriyama, and Masahisa Fukase are poignant and graphic attempts to uncover that identity."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
High-quality illustrations provide a showcase for the divergent styles of four contemporary photographers, to accompany a traveling exhibition of their work. Eikoe Hosoe's images cine matically present a dancer acting out a demon myth in villages and rice fields. Shomei Tomatsu documents the effects of the 1945 Nagasaki atomic bomb ex plosion in shocking artistic composi tions. In Masahisa Fukase's pictures, crows inhabit the images of the volca nic Imami Islands. Daido Moriyama presents shadowy close-up and still-life abstractions from an urban environ ment. Each photographer's work is ac companied by an essay about the artist. Holborn's essays provide a very brief history of Japanese photography in the context of 20th century photographic aesthetics, tracing the roots of a style that evinces Japan's ``terrible yet fertile experience.''
