KITAJIMA, Keizo. Back to Okinawa 1980/2009.

(New York, NY): PPP Editions, 2009. First edition. Folio. Unpaginated. In 1980, Keizo Kitajima, a recent student from Daido Moriyama’s “Workshop,” photographed the nightlife in Okinawa. He preferred the clubs and bars in Koza, the “red-light district,” situated near Kadena, the American Air Force Base. There are no surviving photographs or negatives from this body of work. The images in this limited-edition book were generated by scanning the material from the rare, original volumes. Includes text by Kitajima which illuminates his development as a young photographer and his experience in Okinawa. A very good copy in silk screened covers. Published in an edition of 250 numbered copies signed by the photographer.
