Eikoh Hosoe ::

Barakei
(Killed by Roses)

# 29, 1962 (printed 2006).
Hosoe’s best known series is Barakei, a wild yet
poetic portrait of Japanese writer Yukio Mishima.  A celebrated
intellectual, Mishima wanted to be seen as a “man of the body.”  These
prints are non-traditional, incorporating montage, multiple
exposures, bleaching and other manipulation.
