Japan: "Cafe Photo" filmtastic
It took forever to find this thing on the web.
"The coffee photo magazine - the magazine of the photograph which is enjoyed with the full coffee."
I ran across a copy of #1 at Kinokuniya. Shot on Polaroid, Hasselblad 503, Rolleiflex, Canon F-1, a Horizon, some toy cameras, lots of Tri-X, and just two shots made with a Ricoh GRD which were then hybrid-printed ....
The whole magazine shot by ONE GUY, "Issaque Foujita" whos name comes up in quite a few yahoo auction listings....
Anyone know anything more? This seems to be conneced to the "cameras are accesories for beautiful women" axis of Japanese photography (esp. nostalgic cameras, so you can look like Audrey Hepburn?) -- you see it in lots of ads or the little book "We Love Holga" -- is it a camera book, or a fashion book? The second issue of "Cafe Photo" comes attached to "Woman Camera" magazine...
