Kiyoshi Suzuki (Japan, 1943-2000) began photographing in the late 1960s in Iwaki City, his birthplace. He then worked for thirty years in relative isolation. Suzuki's way of putting books together, layer upon layer upon layer, has become his unique approach. It stands at the heart of the retrospective book and exhibition, which show the enormous wealth of unrivalled photographs that he left behind.
