Remarques & avis / ReviewNobuyoshi ARAKI's meeting with Kosmosuko / Cosmos-Co (17 years old then), the young girl around which revolves the book, was most probably the most important meeting in Araki's life since he met his late wife Yoko — there are to this day only three of his photobooks which bear a woman's name, the best-known being evidently Waga Ai Yoko (1978). Excellent b/w photography, some color shots nicely punctuate the whole, in a well-crafted volume.

Kosmosuko / Cosmos-Co (17 ans alors), la jeune fille autour de laquelle tourne le livre, fut la rencontre la plus importante pour ARAKI Nobuyoshi depuis celle de feu son épouse Yoko — les livres d'Araki portant un nom de femme sont à ce jour au nombre de trois seulement, le plus connu étant de fait Waga Ai Yoko (1978). Excellente photographie en noir, quelques clichés couleur parsèment très-heureusement l'ensemble, et volume bien fini.
