Kiyoshi Suzuki (鈴木 清, Suzuki Kiyoshi, 1943–2000) was a Japanese photographer. He began photographing in the late 1960s in Iwaki, where he was born on 30 November 1943. He worked for thirty years in relative isolation. Suzuki's way of designing his photography books, layer upon layer upon layer, became central to his art.
