This is a fantastic example of a Provoke era Japanese photobook documenting the controversial expansion of Narita Airport during the 1970s.

Hamaguchi's very strong and stark photographs create a very powerful narrative of protest as Japanese society struggled to come to terms with the rapid changes taking place during this time.

This is a very strong and powerful photobook.

  • I have been bidding for a few weeks and have bought four lots. One arrived destroyed from not having been properly packed, but its return was negotiated without a problem. I am a very happy customer
