Flash up
Seiji Kurata
Byakuya Shobo, 1980
First edition
190 pages, 21 x 30 cm
Softcover with obi band

A rare first edition with obi of Kurata's seminal photography book. Shot in the 1970's, the series is a high contrast, black and white trip throughout the nights of Tokyos, its clubs and its seedy underworld at that time. Yakuzas, club girls and bikers all come together in this brilliantly edited book. Very rare, republished a few times but none of the reprints come close to the raw beauty of this first edition.
