After "Man an Woman", it was but a small step to "embrace". Actually, Hosoe started photographing for "Embrace" immediatly after completing "Man and Woman". "Embrace" wasn't published, howewer until 10 years later, in 1971.

According to Hosoe, "around the time I started photographing "Embrace" Bill Brandt's "Perspective of Nude" exhibition was imported. I was greatly shocked to find that one of the photographs in Brandt's exhibition greatly resembled those in "Embrace, so I stopped working on it for a time"

Although this was pure accident, perhaps it was something Hosoe couldn't bear since he places such great emphasis on originality.
