Eikoh Hosoe’s fourth book Embrace (Hoyo – 抱擁) is a visual continuation of his 1961-published title Man and Woman (Otoko to onna).
The images are of the human body in a very simple studio setting, in front of white, black or grey looking backdrops. Sometimes overexposed to enhance and emphasize the graphic shapes of embracing bodies in front of Eikoh Hosoe’s camera. Very rich black and white printing. A beautifully produced book.
