Kishin Shinoyama


Softcover | First edition | 280 pages

Published by Shueisha, 1971.

Shinoyama's inimitable look at the decadence of Rio de Janeiro at Carnival time. It was published as a special edition of Japanese Playboy in 1971, and comissioned by Hitachi Shavers - explaining the ads of the Hitachi razor scattered throughout the book.

The publisher's text -."Kishin Shinoyama & his mad crew challenged Brazil, the land of dazzling sex-craze at the other end of the Globe! Here!! The Human Document of his bitter-comic struggle for 25 days!"

An unsung innovator in colour photography, this book pre-dates his three masterpieces in the medium, Hareta Hi (A Fine Day), 1975; The Meaning of the House, 1975 and Paris, 1977.

Condition: Good (some creasing to last two pages and natural markings / shelf wear throughout)
