Remarques & avis / Review — Le chef d'œuvre du photographe japonais WAKAMATSU Tad (1936-) et incontournable monument de la photographie japonaise du début des années 1970, Ipy Girl Ipy porte deux séries : Ipy Girl Ipy — série principale qui parcourt l'Amérique en Hippies et Bikers avec l'actrice japonaise WANIBUCHI Haruko en fil conducteur, complétée par de fantastiques nus dans les rues et le métro de New York et en studio (les silhouettes sur papier translucide sont remarquables) — et Nazaré no Onna (Femme de Nazaré) — histoire courte qui relate la vie d'une femme en village pécheur, d'un amour de jeunesse à la vieillesse. Excellente impression, noirs profonds et forts contrastes : superbe ouvrage.

The masterwork of the Japanese photographer Tad WAKAMATSU (1936-) and an monument of Japanese photography in the early 1970s, Ipy Girl Ipy entails two series: Ipy Girl Ipy — main series that travels through the America of Bikers and Hippies with the Japanese actress Haruko WANIBUCHI as a leitmotiv, completed by fantastic nudes in the streets and subway of New York City and in studio (the silhouettes on translucid paper are remarkable) — and Nazaré no Onna (The Woman of Nazaré) — a short story that tells the life of a woman of a fishermen village, from youth and love to old age. Excellent printing, deep blacks and strong contrasts: a great photobook.
