Publisher's Description

This newest publication by Issei Suda encapsulates two projects both taken at separate intervals in 2000 and 2014. Both periods focus on the day laborer slum of Osaka and were inspired by Suda's viewing of Nagisa Oshima's film 'Taiyo no hakaba(The Sun's Burial)' released in 1960.

"Such brutal youthfulness, flourishing in the town of sex and violence!" I am sure that the catchphrase appearing on the posters echoed the suppressed energy under the condition of post ANPO-60, soon after the nationwide protests against the revision of the US-Japan Security Treaty in 1960." — Issei Suda

The two projects are presented as two individual bound books encased within the slip cover. The 2014 project was undertaken by Issei Suda at the invitation of Mark Pearson; collector of Asian and Japanese photographs, owner of Zen Foto Gallery and founder of Shashasha. 

Edition of 300, signed and numbered.
