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regarded by the likes of Ihei Kimura and Ken Domon - that mark the starting point of his career, as well as previously unpublished photographs.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.

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). © Portrait (uncredited) taken from the GR blog emanating from the Ricoh company.
