|The world’s favorite hipster booby magazine Smart Girls is back from the dead. Apparently, publisher Takarajima asked original founder and lo-fi erotic photo mastermind Yonehara Yasumasa to come back and resurrect the title. (There was a falling out between the two parties long ago.) The new issue is pretty close to the original format, although the printing quality is pretty third-rate for some reason. Also, there are fewer straight-forward no-top shots than in the past, perhaps trying to expand the audience to women and not just pornophiles with high aesthetic standards.|
Yonehara’s been one of the few people hovering in the street fashion/hipster world who has been able to cross over to the mainstream lately. Continuing with his signature style, Smart Girls mixes erotic, yet clean pictures of big name girl-friendly models (like Fujii Lena) and more explicit shots of his usual porn girl cavalcade.
