Publisher's presentation:

"Tokyo is where I was born and raised. Even after the post-war convulsions and the subsequent period of rapid economic growth, this home town of mine never ceases to transform. The Tokyo of my youth has vanished, but still there are times when I feel joyously nostalgic, sensing the happiness at festivals, or observing the unconscious actions of passers-by. As well as being a record of a certain period in Japanese history, this book is also my own private perspective on my home town, and one that I want to hold in my heart for ever."

Tokyokei presents 106 previously unpublished photographs of the streets and people of Tokyo in the 1970s and 1980s. Beautifully printed in "Daido black" ink on exclusive Japanese art paper, the first edition of this important new monograph is limited to 500 copies.

Published in association with Zen Foto Gallery, Tokyo.

Biography on the Rencontres d'Arles website: Issei Suda is a major Japanese photographer. His "Early Works" were featured in several magazines before appearing together in a 2013 book published for his retrospective at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. From "His & Hers" (1970) to "Silence" (1975), by way of "Passing Summer" (1971), Issei photographed the Japanese street and defined his favourite themes: children, portraits, the curious daily lives of ordinary people, and the passage of time. In 1978 Issei Suda completed his "Fushikaden" series, which brought him international success. He has received the Photographic Society of Japan's Annual Prize (1983) and the Domon Ken Prize (1996). His first exhibition to a western public was "Japan: A Self-Portrait" (1979) at the ICP, New York. His latest publications include "Tokyokei" (Nazraeli Press, 2014), "Boso Fudoki" (Super Labo, 2015) and "78" (Chose Commune, 2020). © Portrait taken from the Rencontres d'Arles website (uncredited)
