Kazuo Kitai, who was born in Anshan, Manchuria in 1944, returned to China in 1973 at the behest of the noted Japanese photographer Ihei Kimura, who assembled a group of photographers to travel the country for two weeks with him. The photos that Kitai took on this trip, which he intended to publish as a book but never did, are now collected in this special publication from Tokyo gallery Zen Foto Gallery.

Kitai's photos capture a China in the midst of Mao's Cultural Revolution, in a style familiar to those who have seen his book 1970's Nippon. The book is accompanied by an afterword from Kitai, as well as a short essay by Sha You, in Japanese, English, and Chinese.

Softcover, 26cm x 18cm, 68 pages, 53 photos.
