Remarques & avis / Review — The first issue of the quality quarterly Shashin Eizo / Photo Image, an outstanding avant-garde photography & critic laboratory, featuring impressive series by Eikoh HOSOE (stylish & abstract nudes from what became the splendid Embrace series), Christer STROMHOLM (powerful monochrome series on death), Jun MORINAGA (very impressive, strongly contrasted photos of exhibitions, store fronts and other moments), Reiko YAMANOUCHI (funky male nudes) and others. An excellent issue.
