Images that give form to the uncertainty embedded in the everyday.

Issei Suda made a name for himself in the Japanese photographic world through his 6 x 6 black-and-white prints that bare the unexpected—and often unsettling—dimensions lurking in otherwise perfectly mundane subjects. Now, a new collection focuses on a perhaps less celebrated, but no less arresting side of his art: his color photography.

The roughly 150 works cover Fragment of Everyday Life (1983–1984), Suda’s first series of medium-format color photography, and four Polaroid series from the turn of this century including Spot, which seeks to capture the “residues” lingering at the sites of past incidents.

When asked what I shoot, I generally reply “everyday life,” but I’m never quite sure whether this is the correct answer. “Everyday life” is simply the most innocuous term to offer as a response.

——Issei Suda
