Masahisa FUKASE "Memories of Father" 1991 Photobook


Availability: Out of stock

Masahisa FUKASE, photographer. "Memories of Father." Tokyo: IPC, 1991, PB, dj, 20 x 23 cm, 168 pp, b/w photos.

"Fukase was an established commercial photographer in Tokyo by the mid 1950s. In 1971 he began journeying back to his native Hokkaido and photographing his family. This book, a combination of Fukase's own pictures as well as some from the family 'archive' is an achingly lyrical biography-in-pictures of his father. It follows the elder Fukase from his boyhood days in rural Hokkaido, through his young family life, into his middle and old age. Fukase looks unflinchingly at his father's illness, decline and death - right through to cremation and memorial. An incredibly moving book."--Photo-eye
