Keizo Kitajima's 1980 publication Shashin Tokkyubin / Photo-mail from Tokyo combines some of his previously exhibited and published works from Photo Express : Tokyo with his colour work from that period. Kitajima's photographs are radical in every way. One can clearly sense where his roots are ( the visual language of the late 1960s Provoke group), but with these works he is moving a step aside, finding his own unique photographic style. The Punk movement was in full bloom, sending cultural shock-waves around the world. Kitajima's high contrast black and white works are electrifying, and the majority of the colour works in this book are playful and sexually provocative images perfectly capturing the zeitgeist.
