List of photobooks by photographer Kawada, Kikuji

Kikuji Kamada is a Japanese photographer born in 1933.

Kikuji Kawada is one of the co-founders of the Vivo collective with Eikoh Hosoe, Ikko Narahara, Akira Sato, Akira Tanno and Shomei Tomatsu. He was one of the 15 photographers selected for the exhibition "New Japanese Photography" at the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York in 1974.

He is the author of one of the most important Japanese photobooks : Chizu [The Map] (Bijutsu Shuppan-sha, 1965), about the experience of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, which has since been re-pulished in different formats, including a facsimile of the orginal edition by Akio Nagasawa in 2014. The most recent edition, published by Mack Books in 2021, is closer in format and design to the original dummy created by the artist.

Among other books published: The Last Cosmology (Mack, 2015) and Remote Past a Memoir 1951-1966 (Case Publishing, 2016).
