Dear all,

We hope you’re well and safe — wherever you are.

These uncertain times have been difficult for all of us as our lives have changed tremendously over the past few weeks. Despite the strange situation, we are happy and proud to announce the release of our
first book of the year, 78 by Issei Suda. We are able to ship twice a week at the moment and are doing the best we can to process your orders whilst taking every necessary precaution. That being said, we encourage you to reserve a copy but wait for things to get better in France and in your country to be delivered.

The story behind 78 tells of a promise kept after the passing of the Japanese master of photography Issei Suda, to publish a book with an original approach. Although the project originated in January 2019, 78 presents a selection of unseen photographs selected from the Suda archive in November 2019. Shot between 1971 and 1983, these photographs have never been published until this day.

“It was only upon our return to France that I realised Suda had passed away at 78, the exact number of prints we had intuitively selected on that autumn afternoon. This book is a tribute to the great photographer he was.” — Cécile Poimboeuf-Koizumi

Thank you for your support and patience.
Be well,

Chose Commune
