VERTIGO HOVERS OVER RK’S IMAGES. THE SPECTACULAR DIMENSIONS OF HIS WORK HAVE LED THEM TO GO VIRAL. ORIGINALLY FROM TOKYO WHERE HE STILL LIVES, RYOSUKE KOSUGE MADE HIMSELF KNOWN BY ILLUSTRATING THE INTENSITY OF THE CITY WHERE HE GREW UP. BUT NOW, HIS FIELD OF ACTION EXTENDS WELL PAST JAPAN'S BORDERS, TO PORTRAITURE AND BEYOND. RK TRAVELS ACROSS ASIA TO REVEAL ENERGY AND CONTRASTS, WEIGHTLESSNESS AND GREAT SPEED, THE MULTIPLICITY OF SIGNS IN AND OUTSIDE CITIES, AND THE SATURATION THEY CAUSE. HIS PHOTOGRAPHS RESONATE: WE HEAR THE TEEMING CROWDS, THE DENSITY OF THE URBAN PLAN, AS WELL AS THE CALM THAT EMERGES.

THIS BOOK, HIS FIRST, ALSO TELLS OF THE SIMPLICITY OF DAILY LIFE, THE MEMORY OF CENTURIES-OLD PRACTICES AND TRADITIONS STILL PRESENT IN ULTRA-MODERN AND ALLCONSUMING CITIES.
