Rare Japanese Photobooks

AbeBooks: Rare Japanese Photobooks: The works of prominent Japanese photographers from the past 50 years are now highly collectible. Connoisseurs of photobooks have become familiar with names like Eikoh Hosoe, Kikuji Kawada, and particularly Nobuyoshi Araki and Daido Moriyama.

Araki has been prolific over the decades but critics have accused him of veering into pornography. Lady Gaga was one of his more recent subjects. AbeBooks has sold more than 20 of his photobooks for prices in excess of $500.
