Masayoshi Sukita was born in a small coal-mining town in the north region of Kyushu, Japan, in 1938. His father was killed on the front line in China during World War II. Though he died when he was just seven, Sukita has vivid memories of his father taking photographs.

Sukita began his career working as a photo assistant to famed photographer Shisui Tanahashi. That led to a move to Tokyo in the 1960s, where he started to do fashion shoots, then later, shooting celebrities in London throughout the 1970s, which sparked his long standing work relationship with David Bowie, which lasted for over 40 years.

Yellow Magic Orchestra is the first official studio album by Japanese electronic music band Yellow Magic Orchestra, who were previously known as the Yellow Magic Band. Originally released by Alfa Records in Japan in 1978, the album was released by A&M Records in Europe and the United States and Canada in early 1979, with the US version featuring new cover art.
