Master ”K” writes on his blog about the collaboration between the photographer Akira Ishigaki and the bakushi Roppongi Kaoru, resulting in the book ”Strange Fruits”:

”‘Strange Fruit’ was released in a limited, ‘deluxe’ edition in 1982 to only modest success in Japan. However, it did get Ishigaki (and by extension the kinbaku of Roppongi) an exhibition in 1983 at the East Bridge Gallery in New York City which then resulted in a small selection of Ishigaki’s kinbaku images being printed in the March, 1984 issue of the prestigious French photography magazine ‘Photo’, thus making the works of photographer Ishigaki and bakushi Roppongi Kaoru some of the first true Japanese kinbaku images ever presented in a Western general audience magazine.” (http://www.thebeautyofkinbaku.com/kinbakuandartchap1.html )
