Publisher's Description

“Close-up images of faces textured by coarse particles and intense contrasts within Michio Yamauchi’s photographs vividly convey the stifling energies of the streetwalkers and the chaos of the city to the audience. His eyes aren’t static - it looks as if the energy of a moment when two walkers collide at the corner of a street has been frozen into a photograph. His images give you a strange feeling and a lack of distance from the object." — Ryuichi Kaneko

Yamauchi Michio’s Hong Kong 1995-1997 is visual record which documents both a city and society. Published again by shashasha in 2015, Hong Kong 1995-1997 brings together a new body of images, revisited and once again brought to new audiences within this photobook. Originally published in 1997 by Sokyu-sha, this publication brings together photographs both previously published and unpublished. Within the cloth-bound hardcover, viewers are once again re-introduced to the incredible body of work which documents a city's society caught within a period of transition through the powerful photographic style of Yamauchi Michio.
