NIHONGI, Satomi. Long Hair Inverted.
(Tokyo): Komiyama Tokyo co.,Ltd., 2021. First edition. Octavo. Unpaginated. Fantastic presentation of Nihongi’s series of portraits that document the long hairstyle trend that began to appear on the streets of Tokyo in the 1970’s. The book draws upon a trove of 450 high contrast vintage prints. Dead pan front and back black-and-white street portraits reproduced alongside their inverted negative counterparts. Cool volume from one of the finest documenters of emerging fashion street culture in Tokyo in the early seventies. A near fine copy in boards housed in publisher’s slipcase with obi. Published in an edition of 500 numbered copies signed by the photographer.
