Issei Suda: Kamagasaki

Having made his name as the go-to photographer for Shuji Terayama's underground theatre group Tenjo Sajiki during the late '60s, Issei Suda has remained woefully underappreciated by the masses – perhaps because he's continued to focus on themes that fit awkwardly with the mainstream of society. For proof, check out this exhibit, consisting of pictures taken in Osaka's Kamagasaki, described as 'Japan's biggest slum' and inhabited mainly by the elderly homeless. Shot back in 2000, these hard-hitting pictures are now finally on display as a prelude to the late February release of Suda's photo book 'Kamagasaki Magic Lantern'.
