Gocho suffered from caries of the thoracic vertebrae, a degenerative bone disease that meant he was only around 4ft high. The disease killed him in 1983 at the age of 36, just two years after this, his final book was published. During his time his work was highly celebrated, and his influence can be seen in the work of Llorca di Corcia and some would argue, the later work of Keizo Kitajima. Cited in The History of Japanese Photography where the work is described- ÔAs if the artist had a premonition of his death, the photographs seem to be looking toward us from some far-off place; issuing an enigmatic appeal, they continue to await our unraveling todayÕ.
