Remarques & avis / Review — A very eery nude body of work by YOSHIKA Senzo, in 6 parts that probably recount and represent the Fall of Sodom (woman and art/god?, man and woman and woman, luxury, the ages of woman, pregnancy worship, man and man, women's fall in the state of nature, pain and pleasure in bondage, death and coffin, woman and dog/oni? – Juu-ai: Dai-3 no Venus was published in 1971 also – and back). Over 150 pictures (mostly full page/spread), mainly in b&w (with varying contrast), interspersed with color pictures (that may represent positive moments in the allegory). Unique in many ways!

Divers / Misc. — Ref.: BERTOLOTTI, Livres de nu, 172-173 (where the title is oddly translated as 'The Garden of Sodom').
