Yukio Futagawa was born in Osaka in 1932. While studying art history he had the opportunity to visit the Kusakabe house in Takayama, Gifu Prefecture on recommendation from his teacher Yasushi Tanabe. That visit inspired Futagawa to travel across Japan and photograph traditional Japanese homes. In 1957, after six years of traveling and shooting, he published the 10-volume Nippon no minka [traditional Japanese homes] and received the Mainichi Publishing Culture Award in 1959. In 1970, he founded A.D.A. EDITA Tokyo. Among its publications are the GA series and The Collected works of Frank Lloyd Wright. Futagawa’s photographs, which document architectural history, both ancient and contemporary are themselves modernist masterpieces
