Kyoichi Tsuzuki was born in Tokyo in 1956. From 1976 to 1986, he was a freelance editor for the influential men’s fashion and lifestyle magazines “Popeye” and “Brutus,” where he wrote on contemporary art, design, urban living, and related topics. From 1989 to 1992, he published “Art Random (Kyoto Shoin),” a 102-volume series covering 1980s trends in global contemporary art. He continues to write and edit works on contemporary art, architecture, photography, design, and more. In 1993, he released the photobook “Tokyo Style (Kyoto Shoin),” which depicts the living spaces of Tokyoites in a raw, unfiltered context; in 1997, he received the Kimura Ihei Award for his photobook “Roadside Japan (Aspect, 1997),” which marked the start of a still-ongoing project to document roadside subjects both in Japan and abroad.
