ISHIUCHI, Miyako. Club & Courts: Yokosuka Yokohama.
(Tokyo): Sokyu-sha, 2007. First edition. Quarto. 82 pages. Grainy, moody photographs taken in decaying amusement bars, entertainment clubs and other seedy places in Yokosuka and Yokohama. Shot in the 1970s and 1980s, Ishiuchi captures the lost glamour, the alluring air of the forbidden, the smell of sex but also the exploitation, horror and desperation of the post-war period that kept lingering somewhere within these ruins. A near fine copy in wrappers with integral flaps, housed in publisher’s printed card slipcase. This example signed by the photographer.
