Publisher's description: During his short life photographer Ichiro Kojima (1924-1964) released his only photo book: Tsugaru: Poetry, Writings, Photography (1963, Shinchosha). Beautifully reproduced to once again coincide with the staging of Ichiro Kojima's noted exhibition, To the North, From the North held at Izu Photo Museum 2014, this fascimile of the original artist book is a unique record of the landscapes, climate and customs of the rural Tsugaru region. Kojima spent his career photographing the natural features of the Aomori region and the traditions of its people, which when viewed today, still harbor a soul-stirring power. Text by Yojiro Ishizaka and poems in Tsugaru dialect by Kyozo Takaki flow alongside Ichiro Kojima's grainy meditative photographs.The slipcase features a woodblock print by Junichiro Sekino, a printmaker also Aomori born, whose career spanned the same period. The book capitalizes on the distinctive qualities of the rotogravure printing of the time, and attempts to faithfully re-create the carefully crafted binding of the original as well.
