Details: Product Description Hiroji Kubota (born in Tokyo, 1939) began his career by assisting photographers René Burri, Burt Glinn, and Elliott Erwitt on their visit to Japan in 1961. In 1965 he joined Magnum Photos, producing major bodies of work, many in book form, on the United States, Japan, China, North and South Korea, and Southeast Asia. His numerous publications include From Sea to Shining Sea: A Portrait of America (1992) and Out of the East: Transition and Tradition in Asia (1999). This is the first comprehensive survey of a key Japanese photographer, with four hundred photographs, some of which are previously unpublished. Review Wherever Mr. Kubota worked he maintained a Japanese aesthetic sensibility--and a passion to create beauty that was his reaction to growing up in devastated postwar Japan. - The Wall Street Journal The new Aperture monograph Hiroji Kubota Photographer is a stunning document. In more than 500 large, luscious pages, it provides a showcase for a pageant of images offering a concentrated examination of the camera's power to record and reveal, and of the vision of a skilled photographer who seemed, almost instinctively, to have been in the right place at the right time over and over and again. - Hyperallergic ...serves as a compelling starting point for exploring the themes, inquisitive spirit and technical innovations that characterized some of the most original documentary-photography artists of postwar Japan - Hyperallergic It's the work of a photographer for whom making an excellent picture seems second nature. - Mother Jones Kubota gives us a truly unique look at the transition of the world from the tumultuous '60s to the 2000s. - Mother Jones From the Back Cover Elliott Erwitt asks in his preface: Hiroji Kubota, exactly where have you been these past fifty years? After a few million miles of travel and photography, what do you make of our planet? This book provides the answer. Hiroji Kubota Photographer traces a compelling journey from his documentation of a turbulent America in the 1960s to his sweeping color panoramas of China, Korea, and Japan. In this sumptuous visual biography, the first survey of his work, Magnum's Tokyo-based photographer emerges as a brilliant chronicler of the world and of our times.
