Roppongi Kaoru: Strange Fruit (1983)

A long time ago already, I made a post about Roppongi Kaoru’s ”Strange Fruits” in the deleuxe edition – a beautiful book in every sense, included on Master K:s shortlist of ”The 10 Greatest Kinbaku Photography Books Ever Published”.

Recently, I got hold also of this ”edited” version, published one year later, in 1983. It is a slimmer volume, not as extravagant in its packaging, but still a very beautiful hardbound book in A4-format. I note also that this later version has the title ”Strange Fruit” without the surprising plural ”-s” that was on the 1982 edition. (”Strange Fruit” is of course the title of a song made famous by Billie Holiday – based on a poem by Lewis Allan from 1937, protesting against the lynching of African Americans.)
