Presentation by Editions Xavier Barral:

"Japanese photographer Masahisa Fukase is among the most radical and original of his generation, famous for The Solitude of Ravens, in which these birds of doom, in flocks or alone, blacken the pages cover to cover of his legendary book released in 1986. He also has a lesser-known, multifaceted corpus: formal research, superimposition, collages, self-portraits, photographs reworked as sketches, black-and-white prints, Polaroids, and more.

This monograph brings together for the very first time all of his artistic work presented over 26 series, including the ones dedicated to his father (« Memories of Father »); without forgetting his series on cats, including his own, Sasuke; and his famous self-portraits taken in a bathtub, with a waterproof camera (« Bukubuku ») or in pairs (« Berobero ») touching tongues, which he later coloured.

Essays by Simon Baker, director of the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, and Tomo Kosuga, director of the Masahisa Fukase Archives, shed light on Fukase’s multifaceted oeuvre which dramaturgy is tinged as much with irony as with provocation. "

This book is a restrospective of the work of one of the most important Japanese photographer, Masahisa Fukase, and also the catalogue of the exhibition Private Scenes at FOAM, Amsterdam, held from September 7th to December 12th, 2018.

This book is offered in two distinct versions: French and English.

PLEASE NOTE: For shipment outside of France, the option that we call "Low Cost" is now limited to 2 kg per parcel, as of September 1st, 2018. This modification excludes de facto all books above 1.8 kg from being shipped this way (which is the case of Masahisa Fukase), and in those cases only a trackable option will be available…
If you are having problems with finalizing your order (especially if you wish to order several books, including one above 1.8 kg), please do get in touch with us and we will explain & arrange payment. Currently, if you want to use the "Low Cost" option for the "small" books, the only solution is to place 2 separate orders. We are trying to adapt our website to this constraint, working around the technical limitations of the platform we are using. We apologize for the inconvenience, and are working towards a quick and efficient solution. Thank you !

Each of the black and white images painstakingly attend to the road’s surface – the worn road-markings, the fading lines and arrows eroded by the city’s innumerable inhabitants, a web of fissures in the asphalt. In 1992,...
