Haruo Tomiyama - Our Day (富山 治夫 現代語感 映像の現代6), Chuo-koron-sha, 1971, Tokyo

 

Hardcover, with dust jackt and obi and acetate jacket, text in Japanes and English.

Features the photos of a series of the same name ("Our Day") conceived in 1964 by the Asahi Journal.

Looking at the photos, however, there is some really exquisite material featured in the book, a witness to the great timing and general mastery of the craft that Tomiyama is capable of ... There are many pictures that are a joy to look at many times over, and given enough sensitivity on part of the viewer, the critical or tongue-in-cheek message will reach its destination without the repeated imaginary subtitle these are critical photos from and about Japan. In other circumstances of life in Japan I learnt that while the Japanese don’t like directness and are masters of subtlety, they just often need seem to need obviousness. This may be one of those occasions. (Kurt Easterwood)
