Takuma Nakahira believed photography had the power to open up a “limitless world”. Together with art critic Koji Taki, he founded Provoke from a shared belief in the way photography influenced perception. His blurred, grainy photographs became an iconic Japanese style in the late 1960s. For Nakahira, photography moved beyond what could be constructed with words, and he often let the camera do the talking with a wide angle lens and by shooting blind without the viewfinder.

This collotype portfolio features an exclusive biography of the artist entitled In Pursuit of the Radical, written by photography critic Kotaro Iizawa. The 12 images included were selected from the following bodies of work:

For a Language to Come - 1970
Nakahira’s first major publication included many images originally published in the magazine and showcased his distinctive visual style.

Circulation: Date, Place, Events - 1971
Nakahira’s second key publication was named after his installation at the Seventh Paris Biennale, which incorporated hundreds of spontaneous Parisian street photographs that spoke to the "performative" potential of photography.

Degree Zero - Yokohama, Exhibition at Yokohama - 2003

Please note:
The portfolio comes with a slip case and ships in 1 - 2 weeks (free expedited shipping is included).
