Scarce. Cited in Parr / Badger v2. Hashiguchi’s catalogue like portrait of Seventeen year olds in Japan, first published in 1988. ‘These 17 year olds were all really very different. These were ordinary high school students, and students whose hearts were engaged in activities outside school. There were 17-year olds who were already working, and those who were devoting themselves to art. All sharing this space of ‘Japan today,’ all breathing the same air, these 17-year olds were yet so different, thinking such various thoughts.’
