Over the last dozen years Tokyo-based photographer I have specialised in snapshots. Capturing both the social meaning of my subjects and the gap that occurs when they are situated in the real world. But in recent years, I moved toward a more purely visual representation, focusing on the colours and forms that appear when his subject is removed from its social meaning. This book is a collection of pure snapshots, what has been called Sugai’s life’s work, capturing the pure colours and forms that appear when the social perception of a subject is discarded.
