Suzy Cream Oil Cheese.

Suzy Cream Oil Cheese. By Osamu Kanemura. Super Labo, 2012. 16 pp., illustrated throughout, 21x29,7cm. Edition of 500. Images from here.

Book description:

" 'Susie Cream Oil Cheese' are photos mainly taken during 1998 to 2000 in Tokyo, Osaka, and Kobe.

The photos taken in Kobe were shot prior to the Great Awaji Earthquake and there are views that can no longer be seen after the disaster.

I borrowed part of the titlle from the late Frank Zappa's 'Suzy Cream Chease'. By adding "oil" to the "cream" and "cheese", I tried to express the dramatic clinginess or extremense of the major cities in Japan, especially that of the Kansai cities."
