"I believe that photography is neither creation nor memory, but documents. The act of shooting a photograph is not something abstract. It is always concrete. No manipulation to make simple things complicated through conceptualization. Only the real I encountered through the medium of the camera is here in my photographs And now I make these photographs public for the first time."--Takuma Nakahira

Takuma Nakahira was a founding member of the hugely influential Provoke movement which also included Daido Moriyama, Nobuyoshi Araki and Shomei Tomatsu. Like his 2003 survey, A New Gaze shows two seemingly completely different styles--one color, one black-and-white. This is due to the fact the Nakahira was struck suddenly with amnesia. During his recovery, he moved to Yokohama and it was there he recalled his passion for photography and started a second life as a photographer. Although there is a discontinuity between the photos taken before and after his memory loss, Nakahira’s straightforward candor with his subject is consistent.

Fine- in Fine jacket and obi; a bit of wear to board extremities.
