YUTAKA TAKANASHI »TOSHI-E (TOWARDS THE CITY)« – selected by DARIUS HIMES

»‘Toshi-e’ was published in 1974 by Takanashi, one of the founders of the highly influential avant-garde Japanese photography magazine ‘Provoke’. Jeffrey Ladd, through his imprint Errata Editions, has been intelligently selecting just those books from the history of photography that deserve serious attention by the modern reader. These hand-picked volumes are then reproduced in their entirety — every single page has been reproduced — and supplemented with interpretive, contextualizing essays by key writers (in this case, the errudite Gerry Badger). While not attempting to produce a facsimile edition of the original, this new “version” of ‘Toshi-e’ allows the serious student of photography to “handle”, if you will, and study one of the great, nearly inaccessible masterpieces.«
