The Solitude of Ravens.

The Solitude of Ravens. Photographs by Masahisa Fukase. Hysteric Glamour, 2008. 136 pp., Numerous black & white illustrations., 10¼x10¼". Comes in a slipcase.

"[...] Renowned photographer Masahisa Fukase explores the world of the raven, a constant presence in the landscape of his native Japan.

He photographs ravens, singly and in groups, in every conceivable setting, both natural and manmade.

His images are spiritually and emotionally powerful, endowing the raven with meanings that are sometimes exhilarating, at other times terrifying."

A little bit creepy, a little bit beautiful
