Personal Matters is a collection of everyday snapshots by one of
Japan’s most promising emerging talents in fashion photography. However, for Hasui, the personal matters more. Caught between emotional ties to his Japanese identity and an affinity to the West,
Hasui captures his relationship to a place, Tokyo, and to the people
who wander in and out of his life.
Five years on from Hasui’s first book Personal Matters, we re-immerse ourselves back in to Tokyo life through his eyes. With a dappling of humour and playfulness, a resounding sense of peace and the search for tranquility seem to be the resolve of this second volume.
