Born 1937 in Tokushima. Graduated from the Tokyo Professional School of Photography (now Tokyo Polytechnic University) in 1958. Joined Adcenter as a photographer when the agency was first established, and went freelance in 1969. He has since been active in a wide range of areas such as advertising, magazines and publishing. In 1965, Camera Mainichi ran his Shitadashi tenshi (Angels with Tongues Sticking Out) series as a 56-page photo story. Composed by Makoto Wada, and with poems by Shuji Terayama and explanatory notes by Shinichi Kusamori, it was a bold editorial that received a great response, and came to be known as a “phenomenon in the history of postwar photography” still today. Photo books include Girl (1970), Private, Actress Mariko Kaga (’71), Momoe Yamaguchi’s autobiography Aoi Toki (Blue Time) (’80), My America (’82), Kazoku no shozo (Portrait of the Family) (’90), and Arifureta Keshiki / Paysages ordinaires (’07).
