from Love Hotel Series
by Kohei Yoshiyuki
First exhibited in Tokyo in 1979, Kohei Yoshiyuki’s twin projects The Park
and Love Hotel
ignited furious debate about photography’s relationship with voyeurism and surveillance.
These photographs are taken from sex tapes made by the clients of an infamous Tokyo book-by-the-hour hotel. “The grainy vagueness of these still images… alternately invites and frustrates, underscoring all the more forcefully that the truth about eros lies not in what you see, but, ultimately, in what you fail to.”Text
