Ueda, Yoshihiko. YOSHIHIKO UEDA: NUDES: 1987-1989. Kyoto, Japan: Kyoto Shoin, 1990. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. Fine.

Collection of male and female nudes. The first and only edition. Volume 87 of the Art Random Series. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. An elegant production by Kyoto Shoin: Oversize-volume format. Glossy pictorial hard boards with black titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Yoshihiko Ueda. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Japan to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Yoshihiko Ueda's "Nudes". The great Japanese artist/photographer's highly idiosyncratic interpretation of the nude. There are only two models, a man and a woman. The woman is attractively androgynous, which is a deliberate decision on Yoshihiko Ueda's part. It seemed the only way to do female nudes without looking like the highly influential and omnipresent Nobuyoshi Araki. The portraits of the male model show him completely naked in every photograph and holding a steel "hula-hoop"-like object created by the photographer. A sensual yet also conceptual re-interpretation of the nude genre as only a Japanese photographer can pull it off. An absolute "must-have" collection for Yoshihiko Ueda collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the most brilliant Japanese artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER YOSHIHIKO UEDA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 4763685880. $50.00
