Contemporary Japanese Photography has produced in the past decades several photobooks, which nowadays fetch top prices from collectors. Photobooks are very popular in Japan and can reach print runs, which would make a few fiction writers blush.
Nobuyoshi Araki sold prints of his photographs on the streets and published his first photobooks all by himself. Rinko Kawauchi, one of the most popular female contemporary photographers, became well known overnight by publishing three photobooks simultaneously.
Photobooks by Japanese photographers, especially from the 1960s and ’70s, cost several thousand Euro nowadays.
Toshio Enomoto, born 1947, had his German debut at our http://www.micheko.com/en/exhibitions/sakura/” target=”_self”SAKURA exhibition last March. His black & white photographs are part of collections of various museums and many of his editions are already or nearly sold out.
We have some remaining copies of his book “Kagirohi” (2008). This photobook shows a selection of his works from the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s of which we have some in our collection for sale. The book can be bought for 70 Euro at our gallery. Some art book dealers are already selling it at a much higher price.
