One of the best of the Photo Musee series - and one of the thickest.

For decades Kuwabara public contributions to photography were as an editor of Photo magazines and in the realm of criticism. From the 1930s until well into the 60s, his own art only saw the public in the occasional photo contest - his vast treasure of negatives remained unprinted. Kuwabara was the first editor to publish the work of a young Nobuyoshi Araki and later it was Araki who saw that Kuwabara's work received the attention it deserved. Today, Kuwabara is seen as one of the world's foremost street photographers, particularly for his photos of the Asakusa and Shitamachi areas of pre-WWII Tokyo.

"I am not looking at Kuwabara's photographs; rather, the me that exists in my memory is once more brought to life."--Shiroyasu Suzuki, Tokyo 1936.

Condition: Good, dj has some wear at the edges, book spine is broken-in in a couple of areas - including the exact middle as usual - otherwise the interior is clean.
