30 x 22.5 cm. Hardcover in box. Illustrated in b/w and colour throughout.Chikashi Suzukis photographs of Japanese actress Sakura Ando are interspersed with scenes of her native Tokyo, its blossoming cherry trees, outdoor parks, and limitless progression of buildings. The subject herself, however, remains aloof and intangible in the majority of these portraits and snapshots, even when reclining nude in a wooden bath. The photo book mostly seems a forced tribute to an uninspiring muse. Only when gentle sunlight shines across Sakuras face and she looks us directly in the eye do we begin to get a sense of her fragility and power. – Fine copy.
