“'70s Tokyo Long Hair Inverted” collected Satomi Nihongi's series of portraits that captures people with long hair during 70's in Japan. Over 400 vintage prints are collated doubly with inverted images. Long hairstyle on the portraits demonstrates the Tokyo's youth trend and culture in the early 70's, that some pictures are appeared on Japanese magazine “Hanashi-no-Tokushu” in 1971, which many Japanese energetic artists; such as Tadanori Yokoo, Shuji Terayama, Shuntaro Tanikawa, and Akira Uno took part in. Also, a portrait of actor Minoru Terada, who performed on the Broadway-born rock musical “Hair” was in the collection.
The images used in the contents are taken from the vintage prints, so some are spotted or deteriorated over decades.
