Key publication from the radical Workshop Photography School founded by Daido in 1974, and co founded by Tomatsu, Araki, Hosoe, Fukase and Noriaki Yokosuka. The school was very small and each photographer taught for one day a week with emphasis on one to one tutoring. Alumni included Keizo Kitajima, Seiji Kurata, Osamu Takizawa and others. Each issue of Workshop was edited by a founder member, with sections by each in every issue, along with work created with and by the students. Overally it’s a brilliant document of the development of post provoke photography. This – the last issue, is primarily work by Seiji Kurata, including some that would later become ‘Flash Up’. Also interesting to see an advertisment for CAMP gallery, which by this type was already up and running.
