RADIUS BOOKS/YOSSI MILO

Kohei Yoshiyuki: The Park

Limited Edition

Introduction by Yossi Milo. Text by Vince Aletti. Interview by Nobuyoshi Araki.

Kohei Yoshiyuki: The Park

A signed, limited edition of Kohei Yoshiyuki's infamous 1970s photo series in a handsome presentation box

For his notorious Park photos, taken by night in Tokyo's Shinjuku, Yoyogi and Aoyama parks during the 1970s, Kohei Yoshiyuki (born 1946) used a 35mm camera, infrared film and flash to capture a secret community of lovers and voyeurs. His pictures document the people who gathered in these parks at night for clandestine trysts, as well as the many spectators lurking in the bushes who watched—and sometimes participated in—these couplings.

This limited edition of Kohei Yoshiyuki: The Park brings this collectible classic back into print with eight never-before-seen images, as well as documentation of the rare 1980 Japanese zines that predated the 2007 Hatje Cantz/Yossi Milo edition. The limited edition includes a signed copy of the book with a facsimile reproduction of the 1980 Japanese publication Document Koen (Document Park), offered together in a special presentation box. The edition is limited to 500 copies.

Collectors take note of this beautiful new 'Kohei Yoshiyuki: The Park' ltd ed

Photo book lovers rejoice! One of Luc Sante's top eight Holiday Gift Photography Books of 2019, Kohei Yoshiyuki's infamous, voyeuristic collection of 1970s nocturnal infrared photographs, The Park, has just come out in a stunning limited edition from Radius Books and Yossi Milo. Published in an edition of 500 signed copies, this deluxe volume comes packaged with a facsimile reproduction of the 1980 Japanese publication Document Koen (Document Park), where Yoshiyuki first collected his infrared photographs of couples engaged in sexual activity in the park at night, knowingly or unknowingly watched by peeping toms. "Infrared can make skin look spectral, which does nothing to diminish the furtive aspect of the entire enterprise," Sante writes. "The pictures share a quality with certain tripwire-activated photos of wildlife after dark: leaping deer under surveillance. The blacks are inky, although there are layers to the darkness; some pictures reward close viewing with murky outlines of yet more peepers farther back. The photos are staggeringly strange." continue to blog
