Nobi Shigemoto
New York Anarchy


A grim view of America in the ’80s in super saturated color Kodachrome – rich and dark and moody a la Subway by Bruce Davidson. – See more at: http://www.dashwoodbooks.com/pages/books/4886/shigemoto-nobi/new-york-anarchy/?soldItem=true#sthash.irIFcXJy.dpuf

Very rare first edition of this compelling photobook from Japanese photographer Nobi Shigemoto, printed by Asahi Shimbun in 1983.
Early 1980’s colour photography of violence and disaffection in American cities.
Images of street fights, US/Mexican border patrol arrests, prostitution, police precinct lockups, biker gangs, gang warfare, murder… Despite the implications of the title, Shigemoto visited and documented not only New York, but also Detroit, Chicago, Hawaii, and the Fort Apache Indian reservation, taking images primarily at night. Intense, lurid documentary work on life in the United States of America in rich, saturated colour Kodochrome.

First printing in original protective plastic sleeve with original obi band.

* Condition: Very Good (small amount of general wear to protective plastic sleeve and general handling, otherwise a clean copy throughout) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.
