AMS is Seiichi Furuya's first book publication. Photographer Furuya left his home country Japan in 1973. His travels through Europe brought him to Austria and Germany, where he spent most of his time. This book was published the year before the tragic death of his wife Christine (photographs of whom appear in his later books). AMS is a street photography book in the classic sense. Furuya visited Amsterdam for the first time in the spring of 1980. Fascinated and haunted by his impressions he returned for a second visit shortly afterwards. AMS is the reflection of the dynamic impact this city had on its visitor. Tight crops and tense compositions give this publication its energetic feel. An Austrian photobook gem.
