Issei Suda (1940-2019), began his career in 1967 as a stage photographer and documentarist of the avant-garde theatre group “Tenjo Sajiki”, a theatrical troupe directed by poet-playwright Terayama Shuji, later working as a freelance photographer in 1971. His works capture a subtle tension between the ordinary and extraordinary and embodies a sense of mystery in his depictions of the unusual in everyday life. His ability to portray the connection between the inner and the outer, revealing only a fragment of his subjects innermost feelings sets him apart from his contemporaries and situates him in a unique position within the history of Japanese photography.
For this special edition, 6 images were selected in collaboration with Issei Suda’s wife Yoshiko Suda from his series Minyo Sanga and Monogusa Syui
