Kohei Yoshiyuki: The Park (Limited Edition)
(1000 items available)
For his notorious Park photos, taken by night in Tokyo's Shinjuku, Yoyogi and Aoyama parks during the 1970s, Kohei Yoshiyuki (born 1946) used a 35mm camera, infrared film and flash to capture a secret community of lovers and voyeurs. The limited edition includes a signed copy of the book with a facsimile reproduction of the 1980 Japanese publication Document Koen (Document Park), offered together in a special presentation box. The edition is limited to 500 copies.His pictures document the people who gathered in these parks at night for clandestine trysts, as well as the many spectators lurking in the bushes who watched—and sometimes participated in—these couplings. This limited edition of Kohei Yoshiyuki: The Park brings this collectible classic back into print with eight never-before-seen images, as well as documentation of the rare 1980 Japanese zines that predated the 2007 Hatje Cantz/Yossi Milo edition.
