The contemporary Japanese photography scene is extremely diverse and remarkably complex. This cutting-edge exploration looks at thirteen young artists who represent the new and innovative directions being taken in their field.
Maiko Haruki, Naoki Ishikawa, Tomoko Kikuchi, Toshiya Murakoshi, Yurie Nagashima, Sohei Nishino, Koji Onaka, Yuki Onodera, Chino Otsuka, Tomoko Sawada, Lieko Shiga, Risaku Suzuki, Ryoko Suwuki, and Chikako Yamashiro belong to a generation of photographers who've achieved a critical distance from the weighty legacy of the Western masters. Focusing instead on issues and ideas related to the changes underway in our contemporary story, these artists produce limpid works that are at once formally classic yet incisive and raw.
