ASPHALT VI, by Various Artists

This is the sixth installment in the black and white photography journal ASPHALT, edited by the famed photo editor Akira Hasegawa, who made a name for himself editing such classic books as Karasu ("Ravens") by Masahisa Fukase, and Journey to Nakaji by Daido Moriyama, among many others.

This latest issue of ASPHALT (published October 2010) features the work of Japan-based South Korean photographer Yang Seung Woo, who was also featured in ASPHALT IV, who here looks at the children of Manila, Philippines.

ASPHALT regular Shinichiro Tojimbara contributes a photo essay on Yokota, the site of one of the American military bases. Atsushi Fujiwara is the main member of the ASPHALT publishing team, and this issue sees a continuation of his "Kagoshima" series that began in ASPHALT V.

Softcover, 26cm x 21cm, 48 pages, all text as well as Hasegawa's introduction in both Japanese and English. Printed in a run of 700 copies. (Editions I, II and III are already out of print.)
