上世紀70年代初,日本攝影家吉行耕平使用紅外線底片和加裝濾色片的閃光燈,在夜裡拍攝一群偷窺客摸黑窺看正在公園暗處調情做愛的情侶。吉行將這些拍攝於1971年至1973年的照片以及在1979年拍攝的同性伴侶的照片集結起來,在1980年出版了一本名為《ドキュメント・公園》(檔案・公園)的書。

但一直到《ドキュメント・公園》發表的近三十年後,吉行耕平於2007年前往紐約Yossi Milo藝廊舉行首次海外個展,他的名聲才開始遠揚。吉行先後在美國及歐洲舉行展覽,並受邀參加2008年柏林雙年展、2009年西班牙攝影節、2012年利物浦雙年展,和2013年的威尼斯雙年展。

吉行的影像是70年代日本大都會的一份社會寫實檔案,更連帶地提出了關於人性慾望、隱私與偷窺的議題,同時展現了影像本身從偷窺者到攝影者到觀者的多重窺視層次。

這份報紙式的《公園 1971-73》,是吉行耕平於2011年在日本東京展覽所出版,收錄其經典作品《ドキュメント・公園》中最為著名的14張照片。

By using a camera equipped with infrared film and filtered flash, Kohei Yoshiyuki (1946-) photographed couples having sex at parks in Tokyo and the voyeurs watching them through the darkness. Yoshiyuki published the photobook, Document: Koen [Park] in 1980 of these photographs produced between 1971 and 1973 together with the photographs of the gay couples newly taken in 1979 for the book.

His first solo exhibition abroad, a collection of these images from the “The Park” was held nearly 30 years later at Yossi Milo Gallery in New York in 2007, and the book “Kohei Yoshiyuki: The Park” (with 62 images) was published by Hatje Cantz/Yossi Milo Gallery in the same year. Since then, this Yoshiyuki's project received global acclaim resulting in exhibitions throughout the US and Europe, such as 2008 Berlin Biennale, 2009 PhotoEspana, 2012 Liverpool Biennal, and 2013 Venice Biennale.

It is a social document of the megalopolis of Tokyo in the 70s, raising questions related to human desire, privacy, and voyeurism. In an essay “Voyeurism and Appropriation in Kohei Yoshiyuki’s The Park,” Marco Bohr accurately described the fabric of this amazing photographic work. “Yoshiyuki thus sets out a complex dynamic of looking and being-looked-at which can be deduced into this formula: a couple kisses in the park, the couple is watched by voyeurs, the photographer photographs the couples being watched by voyeurs, and finally, the viewer looks at a photograph depicting voyeurs looking at a couple kissing in the park. In other words, not only the photographer but also the viewer of the photograph become incidental voyeurs in the act of looking.

This tabloid-style “The Park 1971-73” was published on the occasion of his exhibition in Tokyo in 2011. It includes 14 best known images from the series.
