About Masahisa Fukase
So, for the first time, this monograph brings together all of Fukase’s artistic work presented over 26 series. Including the ones dedicated to his father (Memories of Father); as well as his series on cats, including his own, Sasuke; and also his famous self portraits taken in a bathtub, with a waterproof camera (‘Bukubuku’) or in pairs (‘Berobero’) touching tongues, which he later coloured.
This retrospective of Fukase’s work provides an overview of one of the most radical and important photographers of his generation.
Edited by Simon Baker, the Tate’s first photography curator, and Tomo Kosuga, director of the Masahisa Fukase Archives. The comprehensive book showcases 26 of the artist’s series, including many previously unpublished works, on more than 400 pages.
Fukase has been a seminal figure in contemporary Japanese photography since the 1960s. In 1974, he founded the Workshop Photography School together with figures such as Daido Moriyama, Eikoh Hosoe, Noriaki Yokosuka and Nobuyoshi Araki. Fukase kept experimenting and innovating throughout his career.
