Tsukiji was born in Yokohama in 1947. For many years he worked in Tokyo for the photographic magazine 'Camera Works' and is currently lecturing at the Artgraph Photo School (Shashin kosha). This book follows in the steps of constructivist photography. The images of structures and shapes are clean to the point of being painful. Kaneko Ryuichi, the curator of the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, counts this work amongst the 25 most important Japanese photo-books of the 20th century. He describes the beautifully printed duo-tone reproductions as having a “stoic” quality, a term that is singularly appropriate for the images of structures in various shapes and forms. Only one copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
