“The Dog's Nose is a work that I was doing while little by little extending the points of my compass from my new residence in Chiba... As I walked through the town of Chiba, the distance to Tokyo kept expanding and shrinking in my head like a slow moving pendulum... I was filled with a sense of loss and a feeling of expectation.” (Suda: 'On my photographs' in Tokyo/City of Photos. Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography 1995, p. 221). 'A Dog's Nose' was taken between 23rd July and 16th January. Suda annotates many images with the weather conditions that seem to contribute to the intense colours in the region: Reds, white, and blues dominate and give an underlying sense of violence to the mundane nature of quintessential Japanese suburbia. This book contains unusually personal imagery by Suda featuring both his wife and daughter in their new home. And yet there is a palpable distance between the photographer and his subject. Only one copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
