Hiromi Tsuchida: Zokushin (signed)

125,00

From 1968 to 1975, during a time of accelerated political, societal and economic change in Japan and a growing affluence, Tsuchida turned his lens to the people seeming left behind, the older generations, and the rural population.

As Kazuhiko Komatsu writes in the accompanying essay:
'Some may see ZOKUSHIN as just a record of the ways and habits of a few people as they lived in the 1970's, in a few corners of rural Japan. They would see nothing “ethereal” at all. I must say I feel sorry for such people, and wonder what may be missing from their lives. How can one look — really look — at these faces, bodies, arms, legs, postures, gestures, and not recognize what it means to live ? How can one not be drawn in and deeply moved?' (Japan Exposures)
