JUN, Miki. Samba Samba Brasil.

(Tokyo): Kenko-Sha, 1967.  First edition.  Folio. Unpaginated.  The only volume of Jun’s work, a pioneer of photojournalism and the first Japanese photographer to be published in Life magazine.  The volume here offers a startling portrait of Brazil in the later 50s and early 60s.  Dark photogravures capture the amazing energy of the people, the architecture, and the optimism of the country.  A very good copy in worn and rubbed slipcase.  Classic work deserved of wider recognition.
