'Kodomotachi' (meaning "Children" in Japanese) is a collection of Ken Domon's photographs of Japanese street children of the 1960s-70s.

With the end of the second world war, Domon became independent and documented the aftermath of the war, focusing on society and the lives of ordinary people. He became known as a proponent of realism in photography, which he described as "an absolute snapshot that is absolutely not dramatic." In his heyday he was most celebrated as a photojournalist, though he may have been most prolific as a photographer documenting the everyday lives of Japanese people (and children) after the war and how they adapted and later transitioning to photographing Buddhist temples and statuary.


This stunning document is the first 1976 edition, that is sure to strengthen and indulge any photography collector's shelf.
