HAPPY SNAPSHOT DIARY: Tokyo 1968-1973

Mike NOGAMI

Publisher: Blues Interactions

With a fold-out poster, carton box slightly damaged (see photos)

Published in 2002 by Blues International Inc, Mike Nogami’s Happy Snapshot Diary: 1968-1973 is a rare document of Japan’s most influential folk rock band of the era. Presented as a two book set publication, the photographs present a comprehensive and intimate look into both the cultural and social scene of the time. Within, the images capture the shows, recording sessions, to the personal relationships found between the band members, the social circles and memories experienced by Nogami. A long time friend of one part of Happy End’s founding members, Haruomi Hosono, Nogami began photographing the music group from the early stages of the groups formation. From Hosono’s early musical project Apryl Fool, onto the establishment of Happy End and up until the groups disbandment, Nogami's photographs chronicle an era of both style and society, of both personal memories and friendships all experienced against the now symbolic backdrop of Japan's post-war cultural scene.

Included within the publication is a written dialogue between Haruomi Hosono and Mike Nogami.
