Interview with Hiroji Kubota in “Der Spiegel” about his career and photographic philosophy and ethics.

As he saw corpses after the second World War he said to himself never to take photos of corpses and to leave the dead in peace. Interesting even as he was  in the US in about 1963 and being asian had not the expected problems in taking pictures in the south.

After that have come several trips to e.g. North Korea.
