SHOMEI TOMATSU

 

“A PHOTOGRAPHER LOOKS AT EVERYTHING, WHICH IS WHY HE MUST LOOK FROM BEGINNING TO END. FACE THE SUBJECT HEAD-ON, STARE FIXEDLY, TURN THE ENTIRE BODY INTO AN EYE AND FACE THE WORLD”

– Shomei Tomatsu

“TOMATSU IS THE PIVOTAL FIGURE OF RECENT JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHY, HIS IMAGES ARE AN INTUITIVE RESPONSE TO THE EXPERIENCE OF LIFE ITSELF.”                   – John Szarkowski
