Shomei Tomatsu: Untitled, from the series Chewing Gum and Chocolate,

Shomei Tomatsu, who has died aged 82, was  the most influential Japanese photographer of the postwar era. His raw, grainy and impressionistic style signalled a dramatic break with the quiet formalism that defined earlier Japanese photography, and it influenced many younger photographers, including his friend Daido Moriyama and the often controversial Nobuyoshi Araki
