Kyoichi Tsuzuki: The Beauty of Survival
Kyoichi Tsuzuki: The Beauty of Survival

[Lecture] March 7, 2 PM

Kyoichi Tsuzuki
is an editor and photographer whose photo-reportage Tokyo Style, first published in 1997, proposed a full immersion into the private lives of the Japanese through photographs and texts written by Tsuzuki. His works, while eloquently commenting on living conditions of ordinary people, do not reflect the distant gaze of a sociologist analyzing the world. Rather, Tsuzuki's seemingly banal photographs of everyday environments uncover the hidden value and beauty of textiles born out of necessity for survival in Tohoku.
