ippiedom worldwide

Jörg Colberg has made a video of Tad Wakamatsu’s photobook Ipy girl ipy; you can see it here at Hatje Cantz’s website. NSFW!

There are indeed plenty of inexpensive copies of this book in Japan. (Try for example a search in Mandarake for “Wakamatsu”.) But it will never be easy to find elsewhere. After Steidl’s “Protest box“, perhaps one of these indefatigable German publishers could produce a “Japanese girlfriend box” (wives welcome too): books by Araki, Fukase, Ueda, Wakamatsu, and more.
