「はたらくことは生きること —昭和30年前後の高知」写真展

Tsukiji gallery Fugensha is highlighting the unique work of amateur photographer Sakae Ishida, who recently released his first photobook – at the age of 90, no less. Consisting of monochrome images taken in Ishida's native Kochi prefecture around the year 1955, 'Work is Life' is a fascinating look at the daily lives of local miners and farmers in early postwar Japan. Around 30 silver gelatine prints will be on display, while the photographer himself will be giving a talk on April 14 (from 7pm, ¥2,000, bookings here).
