Softcover, 104 pp., b/w illustrated through, 200 x 260 mm. Photographs by Hiedoki Hagiwara. Text by Annemarie Zethof. Design by Edwin van Gelder.

OKAME is the first book by Hideoki Hagiwara, a Japanese photographer who distinguished himself as a fashion photographer in the United States. “Okame,” a traditional mask symbolizing a cheerful Japanese bride, inspired Hideoki a unique series during his visit to Japan in 1973 with his American wife, Mary, and their child, Mitsu. The playful use of the mask results in a series of photographs with Mary that subtly challenge the norms of Japanese society.
