Kansuke Yamamoto - Various works


Strange I never posted anything from this notorious Japanese poet and photographer before. It's a welcome rectification of this omission. During his life, Kansuke Yamamoto (1914-1987) provided an incredibly strong imagery of nude female bodies, escaping all narrow categories although incorporating some elements of each one. There's something of academic view of nudity mixed with a naturalistic approach of scenography and a surrealistic flavor surrounding the whole picture, not forgetting this little sadistic thing that Japaneses seem to appreciate so much in their vision of sensuality. But the best is to leave you jump in this singular universe that keeps a vivid modernity when so many photographic works of these ancient years have only historical value.
