Kohei Yoshiyuki’s night-time photographs taken with infrared film in Japan’s Shinjuku, Yoyogi, and Aoyama Parks during the 1970s capture the sexual encounters that frequently occurred in the dark. These photographs are unsettling but also alluring and completely characteristic of Yoshiyuki’s boldness in the art of photography.
