Keizo Kitajima


A leading figure in the rise of Japanese photography in the 1970s and 1980s, Kitajima (b .1954, Suzaka, Nagano) first came to be known for his grainy black-and-white shots of people on the streets of Tokyo, at an American military base in Okinawa after the end of the Vietnam War, and in New York. Daido Moriyama, with whom Kitajima first studied photography, praised his talent as a gifted snapshooter by calling him ‘a street killer in broad daylight.’ (more).
