Excerpt: Hiroh Kikai Kikai Hiroo, born 1945) is a Japanese photographer best known within Japan for three series of monochrome photographs: scenes of buildings in and close to Tokyo, portraits of people in the Asakusa area of Tokyo, and rural and town life in India. He has pursued each of these for over two decades, and each has led to two or more book-length collections.
