Atsuku nagai yoru no Shima / The Island of Endless Hot Night. 

Nagahama's photographs of Okinawa show some of the hallmarks of the mature Provoke style--rough, grainy, and out of focus. Despite this, his images convey an extremely pointed critique of the U.S. presence on the Island, a constant since the end of W.W. II. Brilliantly printed, with blue and blue-green cyanotype toning interspersed with rich black-and-white this is a book whose closest counterpart--with which it certainly ranks--with Tomatsu's masterpiece, OO! Shinjuku!
