Masahisa Fukase, Ravens
Ravens is consistently proclaimed as one of the most important photobooks in the history of the medium – a technical and aesthetic tour de force.
Interpreted as a personal and political allegory for post-war Japan, it is a brutal yet beautiful story of love and loss by the Japanese artist Masahisa Fukase, renowned for his single-minded approach to art. First published in 1984, the book had long been out of print until this bilingual facsimile of the first edition was published this year. It includes a new text by founder of the Masahisa Fukase Archives Tomo Kosuga, which locates Ravens in Fukase’s wider work and life.
