About the Author

Shomei Tomatsu (born in Nagoya, Japan, 1930; died in Naha, Japan, 2012) played a central role in Vivo, a self-managed photography agency, and founded the publishing house Shaken and the quarterly journal Ken. He participated in the groundbreaking New Japanese Photography exhibition in 1974 at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and, in 2011, the Nagoya City Art Museum featured Tomatsu Shomei: Photographs, a comprehensive survey of his work. He was the recipient of numerous awards, including the 1999 Japan Art Grand Prix.

Leo Rubinfien is a photographer, writer, and curator. Books of his work include A Map of the East and Wounded Cities. In 2006, he cocurated Skin of the Nation, a retrospective of Shomei Tomatsu’s work; he also recently served as guest curator of Garry Winogrand. Both exhibitions were organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and traveled to other venues thereafter.

John Junkerman is a documentary filmmaker and translator based in Tokyo. His films include the Academy Award nominated Hellfire: A Journey from Hiroshima (1986); Dream Window: Reflections on the Japanese Garden (1992); and Japan’s Peace Constitution (2005). He translated and edited texts for Anne Wilkes Tucker’s The History of Japanese Photography, translated Daido Moriyama’s Memories of a Dog, and collaborated on Leo Rubinfien’s Shomei Tomatsu: Skin of the Nation.
