ONE PICTURE BOOK TWO #25: MASK by Kikuji Kawada [SPECIAL EDITION]

日本人写真家、川田喜久治の作品集。アメリカの出版社「NAZRAELI PRESS」が手がけるプリント付き作品集シリーズ『ONE PICTURE BOOK TWO』の第2巻。

全100タイトルをもって完結した『ONE PICTURE BOOK』のアップグレード版である本シリーズ『ONE PICTURE BOOK TWO』は、装丁、サイズともにリニューアル。各タイトル500部限定発行、約127x178mm(約5x7インチ)のサイン入りプリントが付属し、前作と同様100タイトルで完結予定。

作者は、1965年に制作した第二次世界大戦のトラウマとその後の日本における西洋化を描いた『地図(CHIZU)』とその復刻版(2021年)で知られるが、本書は作者にとって3冊目の作品集であり、「ONE PICTURE BOOK」シリーズへの初参加作品となる。1970年代半ばに制作された『MASK』シリーズから11点を抜粋しており、今回初公開となる。

Born in 1933, Kikuji Kawada is best known for his seminal 1965 book The Map (“Chizu” in Japanese), a disquieting exploration of the trauma of World War II and subsequent westernization of Japan. This series, as well as Kawada’s subsequent bodies of work, has been exhibited and collected around the world, influencing generations of photographers.

Mask is our third publication on the work of this extraordinary artist, and his first contribution to our One Picture Book series. Limited to 500 numbered copies, Mask presents for the first time all 11 images from this series of the same name that Kawada created in the mid-1970s.

One Picture Book Two: an upgraded, upscaled follow-up to NAZRAELI PRESS' much-loved One Picture Book series of artists’ books. Each title is limited to 500 numbered copies, and includes a removable, signed, original print measuring approximately 5x7 inches. The books are slightly larger than those in the original series, with a fresh design and upgraded materials.
