Yasushi Sugino lived in Ikoma, near Kyoto, and was a member of the Osaka Kogei Kurabu club, led for a while by photographer Takeji Iwamiya who lived in the west part of Japan and was very interested in traditionnal handcraft, architecture and buddhism. Yasushi Sugino and Takeji Iwamiya both had a classic photographic aesthetic. Later, Yasushi Sugino will take a more modern aesthetic path, following the avant-garde of the 1930's.

Yasushi Sugino photographed empty streets, damaged walls. Human faces are only seen through bilboards stick on posts. Sugino observed surfaces – like curtains – eggs in a basket or in the pavement. We barely see the sky in his photographs, Sugino’s camera striclty turned to the bottom most of the time.
