Publisher's Description
Japanese artist Kazuumi Takahashi's stunning first monograph, High Tide Wane Moon, explores the relationship between the moon and the ocean. The son of a fisherman, Takahashi grew up near the sea. The schedule of the tide influenced his daily planning, just as the moon in turn influenced the tides. In this large-format book, Takahashi presents 25 double-page spreads, each with a photograph of the moon on the left side, and a corresponding photograph of the ocean on the right. Every double page thus comprises a beautiful diptych in which the viewer is enveloped in water and sky. Collectively, the photographs pay homage to forces that have inspired our dreams, and influenced our ways of life, since the beginning of humankind. Takahashi's work has been widely exhibited throughout Japan. We are pleased to make it available to an international audience with this publication. Printed in a first edition of 1,000 casebound copies, High Tide Wane Moon closes with an essay by Shino Kuraishi, Curator of Photography at the Yokohama Museum of Art.
