An imaginary family photo album conceived in the 1970s, from the fervid and anarchic mind of Japanese photographer and artist Shuji Terayama. Gorgeous collector’s copy of this very rare volume considered a classic in the glamour/erotic repertoire of the period.

Chien Dieu’s family album is a quirky and dazzling mix of photography, text, irony, originality, narrative and subconsciousness, dipping into legends and memories to form its absurd scenario.

Terayama’s eclectic work focuses on issues of sexuality, standardized values, traditions, and conventions – breaking (or ignoring) the latter in terms of form and style.
