Remarques & avis / Review — The fine first opus of Kishin SHINOYAMA's first 'accidents' series (cf. also 2 & 3), starring the famous Japanese actress HIGUCHI Kanako (1958-). Renowned for being the first photobook in Japan to show pubic hair and not being censored for it. Beautiful pictures of deep black in a well-crafted volume, and a milestone in the history of Japanese photobooks.

Le premier opus, réussi, de la première série des "accidents" (cf. aussi 2 & 3) de SHINOYAMA Kishin, avec en modèle l'actrice japonaise HIGUCHI Kanako (1958-). Connu pour être le premier livre-photo japonais à n'avoir pas été censuré pour avoir montré des poils pubiens. Belles photos aux noirs profonds dans un volume bien fini, et livre important dans l'histoire du photobook japonais.
