Remarques & avis / Review — The third issue of the quality quarterly Shashin Eizo / Photo Image, an outstanding avant-garde photography & critic laboratory, featuring impressive series by Kishin SHINOYAMA (LILI, the complete series here, previously unpublished, among which is found 'the breathtakingly sensual and beastly picture in which a negro boy and a half-caste girl intertwine their bodies', as MISHIMA Yukio put it when he saw it during the 28 Girls exhibition), Ed VAN DER EISKEN (striking monochrome portraits, outstanding gravure-printing), Daido MORIYAMA (experimental blurred & grainy urban snapshots; entails some of his now most famous photos), KIMURA Tsunehisa & TANAI Mizuo (vivid monochrome photocollages). An excellent issue.

Le troisième numéro du trimestriel de luxe Shashin Eizo / Photo Image, un remarquable laboratoire de photographie et de critique d'avant-garde, avec à l'honneur d'impressionnantes séries par SHINOYAMA Kishin (LILI, série complète, inédite, parmi laquelle se trouve "la photo sensuelle et animale à couper le souffle où un nègre et une métisse japonaise entremêlent leurs corps", comme MISHIMA Yukio l'écrivit lorsqu'il la vit lors de l'exposition pour 28 Girls), Ed VAN DER EISKEN (impressionnants portraits monochromes, remarquablement héliogravés), MORIYAMA Daido (snapshots urbains expérimentaux flous à gros grains ; comprend des photos parmi ses plus célèbres à présent), KIMURA Tsunehisa & TANAI Mizuo (photocollages monochromes très vifs). Excellent numéro.
