"Yanagisawa's magnificent debut was Untitled Youth in 1958. After that, he recovered for two years from 1961 from an illness, but he actively focused works on camera magazines again.
After returning, Yanagisawa's eye was directed to various places in Japan. From the time of debut, he consistently kept saying « I do not need words in photograph ». The subject, the emotions of the photographer, the world sharpened to the point where it is not necessary to explain it in words, it is just a photograph.
Yanagisawa had only 4 exhibitions of his work in his lifetime, and he published only 3 photobooks. He grasped the world reflected in his eye at a pace of his own regardless of the trends of the surroundings and so on. There is also an episode in the early 70's when he refused a publication request for a photobook from Shoji Yamagishi who was called the Emperor at the then editing chief of the Mainichi Camera.
27 years have passed since Shin Yanagisawa's Photograph was published in 1990. All his past photobooks are already out of print, and now we do not have the opportunity to see them. Michitaka Ota (Sokyu-sha as known as publisher of Fukase's Ravens) edited this edition. Untitled is definitely a historical one in this era."
