Softcover with dust jacket, 108 pages, 300 x 305 mm
Starting in Okinawa in June 1990 and ending in Tokyo in September 1992, Couple is George [Joji] Hashiguchi’s series of 103 portraits of couples. The collection faces the same straight line as his previous publications 17-year-old map (1988) and Father (1990). In addition to its value as an archaeological record, Hashiguchi's point of view always captures the social landscape behind it. Working as a sociological ethnographer with a survey approach, Hashiguchi produces a unique overview of Japanese society with a sense of considerable sociocultural diversity in light of stereotypic reductions of Japan as a homogeneous entity.
Condition: Very Good. A tear on the spine of dust jacket, interior and binding in great condition.
