Remarques & avis / Review — A gem of early 1970s nude 'sentimental photography' through a fine intimate story-portrait of the super-model Emma SUGIMOTO by Shunji OKURA, in grainy monochrome, everyday life, some day and lots of night, and something really touching and strong. A personal favorite.

Une merveille de "photographie sentimentale" du début des années 1970 à travers un beau portrait historié intime du super-mannequin SUGIMOTO Emma par OKURA Shunji, en monochrome noir granuleux, vie quotidienne, du jour et beaucoup de nuit, et un je-ne-sais-quoi de très touchant et de fort. Un favori personnel.
