The title of the book 'Fushi Kaden' refers to a 15th century text by Zeami on Noh theatre, in which the down oral teachings of the Kanze School are set down. However, the work has a wider appeal as a philosophical treatise on the nature of art in general. "The main reason why Fushi Kaden was borrowed as the title for Suda's present work is because Suda himself is an avid reader of Zeami's original Fushi Kaden. The Noh and photography are, of course different modes of expression. Yet, Suda has found much to learn on art in the teachings of Zeami that he also feels may be applied to photography." This work contains portraits of people displaying degrees of self-consciousness. It won the Award for New Talent by the Photographic Society of Japan. Only three copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
