Tatsuo Suzuki: Friction / Tokyo Streets

Author(s): Tatsuo Suzuki

photography monographs | new releases

This book embodies Japanese street photography now. Composed of black-and-white photos taken throughout Tokyo's bustling wards, Friction / Tokyo Street reveals unexpected meaning and beauty in the mundane, be it in an image of a girl navigating a zebra crossing, cropped legs standing on a subway platform, shifting reflections in a store window, or a pigeon caught mid-flight. Suzuki captures the spontaneous gestures, glimpses and abstractions that comprise the best street photography. Yet as the book's title reveals, it is the con - flicting and contradictory energies of the street that lie at the core of his project: "Through my own eyes ... I would like to express the tension, the edged frustration, the taut atmosphere and the feelings that beat, inherent in the city." 'No one moment is most important. Any moment can be something.' -Garry Winogrand
