Publisher's presentation:

"Afterword is composed of photos used in the afterword ’Sasuke’s Diary’ from Sasuke, My Dear Cat, published by Seinen Shokan in 1978. In the small pocket-sized printing manuscript were instructions and numbering written by Fukase himself.

Sasuke the First went missing quite early on, but some time afterwards, someone who had seen the ‘missing’ posters delivered a kitten to Fukase thinking it was probably Sasuke. While they did indeed look alike, the kitten turned out not to be Sasuke after all.

Fukase, however, named this kitten Sasuke and ended up loving him like his own. To Harajuku, on express trains, and even to Ueno Zoo and the seaside - he took Sasuke out with him wherever he went. Referring to himself ‘papa’ while turning his camera upon Sasuke, the depth of Fukase’s affection for his cat can be felt through his photos of its charming visage.

A near-maddening amount of lovely scenes continue page turn after page turn in this wonderful photo book - a masterpiece that belongs on the shelf of a loved one."

The love of Masahisa Fukase for his cats, and for his cat named Sasuke, a name born by several of his cats...

  • Publisher's presentation : "Hibi literally comprises a series of street photographs by renowned Japanese photographer Masahisa Fukase. Each of the black and white images painstakingly attend to the road’s surface – the worn road-markings, the fading lines and arrows eroded by the city’s innumerable inhabitants, a web of fissures in the asphalt. In 1992,...
