Shigeo Anzai

1939 – 2020


Shigeo Anzai (安斎 重男, Anzai Shigeo, born 1939, died August 13th, 2020) was a Japanese photographer.

Like few others, Anzai has documented art from and in Japan in his works. The 2007 retrospective "Anzaï: Personal Photo Archives, 1970–2006" (National Art Center, Tokyo) showed for the first time an unprecedented collection of 37 years of art in Japan. A lone chronicler, Anzai's style of shyly documenting, yet accurately encompassing photographies of art is in itself an object of art. He always includes actual living people in his photographs.
