Sadakata was born in Maebashi (Gumma Pref.) in 1930. In 1958 he started to work as a photographer and was awarded the Asahi Camera Prize in 1977. The present work was first published by Asahi Camera Magazine in 1978. 'Zeego' is how somebody in the countryside might pronounce 'zaigyo'. Sadakata's work is a documentary style book on the lines of 'A Vanishing Race'. It focuses on the idyllic and picturesque aspects of life in remote villages. Sadakata observes the tranquillity of rural Japan on the brink of affluence. There is neither social nor a political agenda in his work. More often than not the subjects are aware of his presence and yet they seem to accept him as one of theirs. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
