Jyuai [Animal Love]

Portfolio with slipcase includes 6 pages plus 27 folded posters (25.25 x 20.5″ & 12.625 x 20.5″), photographs in black & white and color. “Jyuai (Animal Love; 1971), another work by Yasuhiro Yoshioka, is presented in a box whose cover is composed like a jigsaw puzzle and shows a woman masturbating. Looking more closely, we discover that the pieces of the puzzle are shaped like sinuous little fishes. Inside, the photos are printed on large sheets folded in two or four, like posters that need to be unfolded for their meanings to be understood. Each female nude is photographed in relation to a creature in the animal world. Monkeys, cats, and dogs are intermingled with the naked bodies, in eccentric, refined compositions.” – Alessandro Bertolotti, The Books of Nudes, pg. 174-5
