Sale price€75,00

‘I had no choice but to buy my first large format camera, and since I did not have a car, I mounted my equipment on the foot of my scooter and rode around Tokyo for more than two years. That was my starting point as a photographer, and it seems like a small miracle that more than 30 years after ​its​ original publication, a new version​ of Tokyo Style​ is being released by Apartamento’. —Kyoichi Tsuzuki

More than three decades after its original publication, this new edition of Tokyo Style revives a cult classic and token collector’s item. Kyoichi Tsuzuki’s timeless photographs offer an intimate look at Tokyo homes as they are truly inhabited, presented here with a refreshed design that preserves the original book’s generous format. A selection of the book’s iconic images culminates in a new afterword by Kyoichi that unravels the nostalgia sparked by his work, which captures an analogue world of rich self-expression. A foreword by writer Barry Yourgrau, a longtime friend of Kyoichi, meditates on the ‘untidy and prodigiously cluttered’ hideouts of Tokyo, filled with everything ‘from the raunchy to the freaky and funky to the kawaii (“cute” in Japanese)’.

Tokyo Style invites readers into the routines of one of the world’s major metropolises, offering a template for the ways we might live more connected with ourselves and our community. ‘Take a seat’, Kyoichi beckons. ‘This lifestyle ain’t half bad’.
