HATJE CANTZ

Peter M. Cook: Edo

Edited with text by Maggie O'Regan.

"Sumida Ward Office, Sumida-ku" is reproduced from 'Peter M. Cook: Edo.'

British architectural photographer Peter M. Cook (born 1967) started traveling to Tokyo in 1992, and settled there in 1998. Cook has devoted himself to photographing buildings across Japan. Edo is the culmination of 20 years spent tirelessly documenting Tokyo and its buildings, recording an architectural evolution of the city.
For this photobook, Cook has selected 100 images of Tokyo, paying homage to the visual language of Hiroshige’s 100 Views of Edo: Mount Fuji makes an appearance, ghostlike in the background, its powerful iconic presence a reminder of a constant in nature, in contrast to the urban landscape at its base. At the same time, Cook’s abstract aesthetics are reminiscent of the pioneering silent film Metropolis (1927), which still defines the futuristic city.
The book also includes a haiku by the renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, whose buildings Cook has documented for a new project.

In Peter M. Cook's 'Edo,' the true face of Tokyo

In Peter M. Cook's 'Edo,' the true face of Tokyo

Tokyo-based British architectural photographer Peter M. Cook "is blessed with a rare sensitivity towards big cities and instantly grasps what they are made of," Japanese architect Kengo Kuma writes in haiku form in Edo, the exquisitely produced new release from Hatje Cantz. "He's discovered the true face of Tokyo that could never be noticed by its locals, myself included. He has a wondrous power to feel the shadow, light and air of Tokyo." Featured image is Yoyogi National Stadium 1st Gymnasium, Shibya-ku. continue to blog
