HirojiKubota3Aperture is out with Hiroji Kubota Photographer the first comprehensive survey of veteran Magnum photographer Hiroji Kubota’s work spanning over 50 years.

Elliott Erwitt was on hand for the book launch, at Aperture Gallery this evening, and commented that Kubota’s life has been an “extraordinary life led and that’s what is celebrated.”

An accompanying retrospective of over one hundred Kubota’s photographs is taking place at Aperture Gallery and Sundaram Gallery in NYC, through the end of the year.
