Hiroji Kubota: Photographer

Foreword by Mark Lubell. Text by Alison Nordström. Preface by Elliott Erwitt.

Featured image is reproduced from <i>Hiroji Kubota: Photographer</i>.Over the course of a career spanning more than 50 years, Magnum photographer Hiroji Kubota (born 1939) has spent his life traveling extensively and documenting the world around him. From his coverage of the Black Panther Party in the mid-1960s to his incomparable access to North Korea, Kubota has prolifically captured the histories of diverse cultures throughout the world. This sumptuous visual biography encompasses the best images of his life's work, broken down into chapters, with illuminating narrative texts throughout. Rooted in his experience of a Japan ravaged by destruction and famine at the end of World War II, Kubota's work is characterized by a desire to find beauty and honor in human experience. Hiroji Kubota: Photographer includes all of Kubota's key bodies of work, including his many extended trips to China, Burma, the United States, and North and South Korea, as well as his home country, Japan.

Hiroji Kubota: Photographer, March on Washington

Japanese photojournalist Hiroji Kubota's 1963 photograph of activists at the historic March on Washington, DC, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his revolutionary "I Have a Dream" speech is reproduced from Aperture's revelatory new 512-page monograph. Kubota, who was six years old when Japan ceded the Second World War, has shot everything from the civil rights movement in America to state parades in North Korea. He is the product of many influences, experiences and cultures," writes Alison Nordström, "but his own culture persists as a normative force. His impeccable images may be analogous to kyudo, the Zen practice of archery, in which attitude, movement and technique unite in harmony; beauty is valued for its effect on the spirit; and the arrow exists in the target even before the archer lets fly." continue to blog
