Rare large-format Collectible Photobook from one of the most unique of Japanese photographers. Scarce. "Takagi's nude photos enable us to escape the physical gravitation that never ceases to be part of us. One is reminded of life inside the womb: light strikes the form as if a life is beginning, conveying a sense of our existence in which we drift in and out of our dreams and our memories. Liberated flesh radiates an aura of strength." This import photobook was never reprinted and never published outside of Japan. Images reminiscent of Eikoh Hosoe.
