Errata editions publishes reproductions of photo books that have never reached a wide audience. Japanese books, for example. Connoisseurs will know that the publishers of avant-garde magazine Provoko gained a following with their post-war photography, in which they used a new visual language to describe reality. Black and white, coarse, slightly ominous. Yutaka Takanashi's Toshi-e (1974) is no different. In a pessimistic tone, he portrays the enormous economic and industrial changes taking place at that time in an unknown Japanese city. A modern society that Takanashi seems to distrust but can't escape from.
