Hitoshi Tsukiji

b. 1947, Japan

Hitoshi Tsukiji was born in 1947 in Kanagawa prefecture and graduated from the Tokyo Junior College of Photography (currently Tokyo Polytechnic University) in 1967. In 1975, he self-published Vertical,(DOMAIN) and formed the group, 'CAMERA WORKS', together with the photo-critic Ryuichi Kanekoand the photographer Shinzo Shimao in 1979. The group was founded to seek new styles ofphotographic representation and published magazines camera works tokyo (from 1979 to 1995) as aplatform for the artists called 'independent photographers'. 

Since his debut, Tsukiji has shown a keen sensibility to the influence of the images which can arouse our imagination beyond what we have seen, and he regards photography as a place where the imageitself arises, instead of where the image is subordinate to the subject.

Consistently turning his gaze towards the urban environment and the architecture, Tsukiji observes carefully the transformation of cities. In his series 'Shashinzo' (1984), he explores the reality of urbanstructure in a minimalist manner and captures its beautiful but homogenised design, destined that it willsoon go out of date. Vertical, (DOMAIN) series collects Tsukiji’s hard-edged snapshots which betray apredilection towards clearly defined forms and shapes. The series became his lifelong work, Tsukijiholds numerous exhibitions under the same title. He pursues vigorously the essence of photography byexploring a bundle of moments that he captured.

His solo exhibitions include Shashinzo 1984-1986, Picture Photo Space, Miyako Gallery (Osaka, 1987); Vertical, (DOMAIN), Mole (Tokyo, 1992); MONAD, ZEIT-FOTO SALON (Tokyo, 1993); Objects, Faces and Anti-Narratives – Rethinking Modernism, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum ofPhotography (Tokyo, 1995).

His works are included in the collection of the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; Kawasaki City Museum; The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; Tokyo Polytechnic University ShadaiGallery; Princeton University Art Museum. Tsukiji is the recipient of the Photographic Society of Japan Newcomer’s Award (1985) for Shashinzo.
