Kamera Me X Tetsu Kosei( Camera Eye X Steel: Composition)
by HORINO, Masao
1932. HORINO, Masao. Kamera me tetsu kosei. [Camera Eye X Steel: Composition]. Illustrated with 44 photographic plates. 4to., bound in publisher's wrappers in a morocco-backed chemise and slipcase. Tokyo: Mokuseisha Shoin, 1932. A fine copy of Horino's legendary second book, which is considered to be the epitome of Shinko Shashin (Modernist Photography) in Japan, with slanting views of cruise-liners, bridges, trains, gas-storage containers, and other symbols of modernity. Clearly influenced by European photographers like Moholy-Nagy and the Bauhaus group, Horino became famous for exploring the functional aesthetic of machines and architecture. Wrappers slightly soiled and with expert repairs to the spine and one plate. Nevertheless a more than acceptable copy. Exceedingly rare, with no copy seemingly having appeared at auction, and only the National Diet Librtary copy listed on OCLC. Ryuichi and Heiting, The Japanese Photobook, No. 50.
