Most people who see Kitai’s work may feel nostalgic or experience a sense of deja vu. This is not because he has selected places to which most people have been, but because they are scenes that Kitai himself, alone, had experienced. It is, however, because they capture so precisely eternal scenes from the times in which they were taken that we recognize them as documentaries of times that we, too, can share. From now on, if asked what kind of photographer is Kitai Kazuo, I have my answer. Kitai Kazuo is a photographer who documents everyday life. (Quotation text from Satomi Fujimura Curator, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography) This book is co-published in conjunction with the exhibition at Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography Nov 2012 – Jan 2013. An excellent retrospective of the work of Kazuo Kitai with text in both Japanese and English..
