. Eikoh Hosoe Untitled, 1965, from the series Kamaitachi.

Eikoh Hosoe is giving a talk and signing books tomorrow night at Aperture Gallery in Chelsea (NYC), and on Thursday the National Arts Club will present him with the Medal of Honor for Lifetime Achievement in Photography. Kamaitachi – Hosoe's documentation of a visit to a farming village in Northern Japan – was originally released in 1969 in an edition of only 1000 copies, but has since been re-printed by Aperture.
