"A true iconoclast of Japanese photography, Keizo KITAJIMA’s 'CAMP 1979'_compiles images which document and reflect the exhibitions and social gatherings which took place at the independently run photography gallery, called 'CAMP' - co-founded by KITAJIMA, Seiji KURATA and Daido MORIYAMA.

Reflective of KITAJIMA’s photographic style; grainy and more extreme in the his use of contrast and saturation when compared to his contemporaries such as Moriyama, the images brilliantly re-remember the adrenalin filled exhibitions which explored the limitless possibilities of the accidental.
Covering the entire walls with his images, often placed in a grid formation alongside projections, 'CAMP' was a space which embodied the performative and experimental exhibitions of KITAJIMA himself.

This publication, 'CAMP 1979', allows viewers the opportunity to glimpse back into the iconic monthly shows, presenting an era within KITAJIMA’s photographic career which encapsulated a photographic style which has now but evolved since then.

Keizo KITAJIMA's 'CAMP 1979' is available in two different cover designs." (publisher's note, © Superlabo, 2015)

"KITAJIMA's Fotoband 'CAMP 1979' dokumentiert die Aktivitäten - Ausstellungen und Abende - in Tokios Club 'CAMP', der von Kitajima, Seiji Kurata and Daido Moriyama mit gegründet wurde.
Typisch für KITAJIMAs Stil ist die grobe Körnung und die sehr starke Kontrastrierung (stärker noch als bei Daido MORIYAMA), sowie Auswahl seiner Motive:, z.B. das scheinbar mit Adrenalin vollgepumpte Partyvolk der 70er." (© Richard G. SPORLEDER)
