Tsukiji: Tokyo Fish Market Suite

Tsukiji, the place that gives the Tokyo Central Wholesale Market its common name, is somewhere between a well regulated machine and chaos. Stepping into the market is like stepping into a raging river where, if you don’t quickly learn to navigate, you will drown under its activity. I stepped into this torrent for the first time in 1991, when nearly 3,000 tons of seafood was handled each day, making this the largest fish market in the world. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government plans to relocate the market because of its aging infrastructure. This small book is my homage to this place.40 photographs, text in English and Japanese, 48 pages, uncoated paper, 8.5″x8.5″.ISBN: 978-1-935461-10-4

The book is divided into three chapters: Prelude,Courante,Intermezzo. For more information on this book, visit our blog.
