Katsu Moriguchi is a journalist and photographer who has been documenting the difficult relationship between Okinawa and the US presence during his career. With his mission of “conveying the suffering of Okinawa to mainland Japan,” he documented the situation in Okinawa in photographs, news articles and documentary programs.
This book consists of 113 works taken by Moriguchi between the 1950s and the 2000s, capturing both the beauty of the island nation, the local indigenous culture, and the many changes brought about by the US presence, Okinawa’s reversion to Japan, and the difficult history that unfolded thereafter.
