Around 1960, Hosoe began addressing the naked body and sexuality, themes that are central to later art in both East and West.  Man and Woman depicts the eternal battle between the sexes.  Its treatment of woman as an equal was as shocking as its male and female nudity.  Hijikata’s dance troupe posed for that series and for Embrace, a series about sensual and sexual contact.
