Issei Suda (須田 一政, Suda Issei) (24 April 1940 – 7 March 2019) showed us his native Japan. A new book of his work features life in Tokyo and surrounding prefectures in the 1970s and ’80s.
“The story behind 78 tells of a promise kept after the passing of the Japanese master of photography Issei Suda, to publish a book with an original approach,” writes Cécile Poimboeuf-Koizumi. “Although the project originated in January 2019, 78 presents a selection of unseen photographs selected from the Suda archive in November 2019. Shot between 1971 and 1983, these photographs have never been published until this day.”
78 is published by Chose Commune. All photographs by Suda Issei Works/Chose Commune
