Ode to the southern lands of Japan.

Photographs by Atsushi Fujiwara. Edited by Michitaka Ohta.
SOKYUSHA, 2013. 104 pp., 95 black & white illustrations, 9x10".

In this exquisitely printed monograph, Atsushi Fujiwara retraces the steps of his grandfather, paying homage to his origins in the Southern region of Japan. Ninety-five rich black & white photographs illustrate a poetic loneliness in the quest for one's personal family history in Nangokusho. The photographs are almost entirely devoid of people, giving a sense of distance, loss and emptiness as he wanders, piecing together his family's past and beginnings. Despite the somber tone, the photographs maintain hope in the search for roots within post-war Japan.
