Presentation by Case Publishing: 

"Remote Past a Memoir 1951-1966 has been published in conjunction with the third Daikanyama Photo Fair, for which his woks have served as the main visuals. The photobook focuses on the years 1951 -1966, an early period during which Kawada established his own photographic voice, and features works - highly regarded by the likes of Ihei Kimura and Ken Domon - that mark the starting point of his career, as well as previously unpublished photographs.

« A reminder that not only memories of the past, but memories regarding the future are lurking here. You experience deja-vus as well as jamais-vus. This is what happens when photos like these are collected together. They surpass time, they surpass space. »

      --   Kikuji Kawada "

With an afterword by Rei Matsuda, curator of the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo, in Japanese and English.
