Memories of Father. Photographs by Masahisa Fukase. IPC/Inter Press Corporation, Tokyo, 1991. 167 pp. Small quarto. SIGNED in English on title page. Stiff printed wrappers with printed dust jacket and obi. Black-and-white reproductions.

Fukase was an established commercial photographer in Tokyo by the mid 1950s. In 1971 he began journeying back to his native Hokkaido and photographing his family. This book, a combination of Fukase's own pictures as well as some from the family 'archive' is an achingly lyrical biography-in-pictures of his father. It follows the elder Fukase from his boyhood days in rural Hokkaido, through is young family life, into his middle and old age; Fukase's looks unflinchingly at his father's, illness, decline and death--right through to cremation and memorial. An incredibly moving book!
