The Magenta Foundation prides itself on the forward thinking and high quality books the foundation is well known for. The scope of our work—featuring, photography, painting and all visual arts—includes emerging photographers, mid-career artist monographs, and Indigenous artists. We believe that books are integral to enriching the lives of the artists we publish and broadening our global audience with work they can collect.
Greg Girard’s photographs from Tokyo-Yokosuka 1976–1983 are artifacts of a pre-bubble Tokyo, before it acquired imaginative shape as the late 20th Century’s default for a 21st Century city. Television, cinema, newspapers and magazines were the prevailing outlets for information and entertainment. The US Seventh Fleet, based in nearby Yokosuka, was a reminder of the late Cold War realities of the day.
