"A reminder that not only memories of the past, but memories regarding the future are lurking here. You experience deja-vus as well as jamais-vus. This is what happens when photos like these are collected together. They surpass time, they surpass space." (© Kikuji KAWADA)
"This photo volume, 'Remote Past a Memoir: 1951-1966' by Japanese photographer Kikuji KAWADA has been published in conjunction with the third Daikanyama Photo Fair, for which Kikuji KAWADA's works have served as the main visuals.
The photo book 'Remote Past a Memoir: 1951-1966' by Kikuji KAWADA focuses on the 1950s and 1960s, an early period during which the photographer established his own voice, and features works - highly regarded by the likes of Ihei KIMURA and Ken DOMON - that mark the starting point of his career as well as previously unpublished photographs."
