Born in 1956, Tsuzuki is best known for his books Roadside Japan (1998) a book he created as an alternative guide book to the country’s unsung places, and Tokyo Style (1993), a book that explores how young urbanities deal with compressed living. These two books of photography challenge the image that most people harbour of Japanese design as elegant, minimal and immaculately tidy.
Journalist, editor, art curator, club designer, book publisher and photographer, Kyoichi Tsuzuki has made it his life’s mission to reveal and define creativity as it manifests itself outside ‘high’ or mainstream culture. He takes things that stimulate his interest and makes them public.
A few years ago, Kyoichi Tsuzuki bought the contents of a Japanese sex museum. He has since exhibited its contents in museums and art galleries
His photographs of the objects from the sex museum have been published in book form and produced as exhibition prints.
For the exhibition Los Jardines de las delicias, 3 of these images were printed as pigment prints on gesso coated aluminium.
