內容簡介 深瀨昌久以1991年的作品《鴉》的代表作聞名攝影界，甚至在2010年被英國攝影雜誌British Journal of Photography選為「近25年來最好的攝影集」，但在《鴉》之外，深瀨較少人知曉的作品，如人物寫真、拼貼照、自拍照等也一樣精彩。深瀨的攝影起源於自父親手中繼承的「寫真館」，到設計公司上班後，認識了他一生的摯愛洋子，兩人結婚後的日子，深瀨瘋狂地拍攝洋子的照片，但攝影和生活的失衡，讓洋子決定離開他，而知名的《鴉》就是在洋子離開後的孤獨中誕生，那些黑壓壓的照片中，深瀨就是其中一隻狂亂飛行的渡鴉。這本攝影集由東京Masahisa Fukase Archives的館長Tomo Kosuga和巴黎the Maison européenne de la photographie館長Simon Baker合作，挑出了共26個系列，集結了深瀨過去40年間的精彩作品，收錄了《鴉》、《父親的回憶》、貓的寫真、在浴缸中拍攝的自拍照，還有許多未曾曝光的照片，超過400頁的內容，將深瀨的攝影生涯展現無遺。From darkly fascinating photographs of ravens to humorous self-portraits, Fukase created images of enormous emotional powerAmong the most radical and original photographers of his generation, Masahisa Fukase was famous for The Solitude of Ravens (1991), in which these birds of doom, in flocks or alone, blacken the pages of the book in inky, somber, calligraphic clusters; in 2010 it was voted the best photobook of the past 25 years by the British Journal of Photography. Fukase also has a lesser-known corpus of collages, self-portraits, photographs reworked as sketches, black-and-white prints, Polaroids and more. This book brings together all of his work for the very first time.Its editors, Simon Baker, director of the Maison européenne de la photographie, Paris, and Tomo Kosuga, director of the Masahisa Fukase Archives, Tokyo, have assembled 26 series from Fukase's oeuvre, including Memories of Father; The Solitude of Ravens; his portraits of cats; his famous self-portraits taken in a bathtub with a waterproof camera; and many previously unpublished works. Fukase tried his hand at everything, and this essential volume, at more than 400 pages, at last reveals the full breadth of his imagination in an English-language publication.

In 1971 he published his first photography book, consisting of group portraits of his family. In 1974, he cofounded the Workshop Photography School with Shomei Tomatsu, Eikoh Hosoe, Noriaki Yokosuka, Nobuyoshi Araki and Daido Moriyama; that same year, MoMA in New York dedicated a milestone exhibition to them (New Japanese Photography).
