Shomei Tomatsu - I am king - 東松照明, Shashin Hyoronsha, 1972, Tokyo

 

Softcover in slipcase.

"In 1972, at the age of forty-two and already established as one of Japan's most important photographers, Tomatsu moved to Okinawa. 'I am a King' is his magnum opus of this period. The book gathers portraits of politicians, roadside scenes, 1960's era protests, images of industrial detritus, and the urban skyline. A persistent theme is the Americanization of post WWII Japan and the upheaval it wrought on traditional Japanese culture." (Ibasho Gallery)
