Large Folio, Unpaginated. Brown leatherette binding in matching gilt stamped slipcase. Has the rare location map laid in.

Images of Paris taken by Shinoyama during the seventies. Quiet, melancholic and crumbling, the images look as if they are from an earlier time, with the more advanced and beautiful colour possible in the 70’s. The photographs include streets, shops, gardens, markets, street cleaners and circus performers. An elegant piece of travel work from the master of the nude – albeit in a form that is about as seventies as it could get.
