Olele Olala by Kishin Shinoyama

Publisher: Hitachi Shavers, Tokyo

Year: 1971

Format: Softcover,

Edition: First

Condition: Used, good. General wear to cover. More photographs available on request.  

A boisterous series of images shot by Kishin Shinoyama during Carnival time in Rio de Janeiro, Olele Olala is a playful celebration of hedonistic pleasures. Originally commissioned by Hitachi Corp. (which explains the sporadic presence of the company’s electric shavers in many of the images), Olele Olala remains an important and influential photobook, predating Shinoyama’s well-known later works – Hareta Hi (A Fine Day), 1975, The Meaning of the House, 1975 and Paris, 1977
