Chizu - Kikuji Kawada


Kikuji Kawada

130,00  inkl. MwSt., zzgl. Versand

The original 1965 edition of “Chizu” is a legendary photography book that is virtually impossible to catch sight of today. While relentlessly tracking the “stains” scattered across walls and ceiling of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, Kawada projects memories of the war through young soldiers’ portraits and letters, more

ruined fortresses, etc. At the same time, his pictures of iron scraps at factories, Lucky Strike boxes brought in by occupation forces, dumped Coca-Cola bottles, and other indicators of recovery after the war, document the process of overall transformation in postwar Japan. This long-awaited new edition of “Chizu”, renowned as one of the most experimental Japanese photography books, is a complete reprint adopting Kohei Sugiura’s original peculiar design with all photos as double-page spreads.
