The latest entry in a project series by publisher and designer Satoshi Machiguchi in which he lets contemporary Japanese photographers engage with works of Japanese literature in the space of a book. After collaborating with Daido Moriyama for the first three entries in the series, Machiguchi chose Sakiko Nomura for this fourth and latest issue.
Ango Sakaguchi’s short story “The War and a Woman” was released in 1946 heavily censored by the GHQ (the offices of the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers during the occupation of Japan).
