Concrete Octopus Special Edition
The box set, limited to an edition of 30, includes the original book and one gelatin silver print (17x22 cm in size) signed by the artist.
It would be strange and misleading, though obviously not wholly inaccurate, to call these photographs “images of the Japan of the present time.” Though they might perhaps have much to say to the social historian, their documentary function is circumscribed by the interest in exploring a visual universe too disunited and incomplete to be recognizable as a cultural or historical form. In these images, the world presents itself with great purity and without provocation or seduction, as though poised in the interval before the repetition of an already forgotten catastrophe. ― Chris Fujiwara
