The debut volume in this series, The Provoke Generation: Rebels in a Turbulent Time, captures Japan during the turbulent 1960s and 1970s through the lens of the era’s most innovative photographers. Post-war art of the 60s was both politically charged and sensually vibrant, and for many Japanese photographers, the blurred, grainy qualities of are-bure-boke (rough, blurred and out-of-focus) epitomized the unrest and dissatisfaction with tradition at the time. This collection includes photographers featured in the short-lived avant-garde art magazine Provoke alongside protest photography and photography from the female minority perspective of the time period.

The inaugural volume of the Portfolio Series reflects the curatorial brilliance of three key figures. Simon Baker, a groundbreaking Curator of Photography at the Tate Modern, wrote one of the volume’s introductory essays, and he also worked closely with Ryuichi Kaneko and Kotaro Iizawa, both leading historians of Japanese photography, to carefully curate this volume’s works.

In an effort to ensure that the images selected were representative of each artist’s individual approach, Baker, Kaneko, and Iizawa selected four images from the three most important bodies of work for each artist. The result is a compendium that is both varied and yet offers a sense of continuity in regard to each artist’s approach.
