My prize from #japanhouselondon following their competition. Thank you. Several months ago I had purchased the same book which I had lent to my friend Alena. She is keeping the original. We both like Tokyo Rumando. I also like Mika Ninagawa. Some of the new photographers whom I became aware of through this book included Hiromix , Hiromi Tsuchida and Takeyoshi Tanuma. A really interesting book. #japan#tokyorumando#hiromix#mikaninagawa#japanesephotography#japanesephotobook

What kind of taste ramen do you like? This pic is Shoyu(soy sauce) ramen. Shoyu broth has a soy sauce base with a clear, brown color. Usually, Shoyu ramen has curly noodles, and the meat or vegetable stock gives it a delicious, tangy flavor. If you’re in Tokyo, Shoyu is the most familiar form of ramen you’ll find.

Do you know “meet up place” in Shibuya? It named bronze statue Hachikō. At first glance the small Hachiko Statue near Shibuya Scramble Crossing may not appear particularly impressive. It’s only upon hearing the story of the actual dog that you can really appreciate its significance. In the 1920s, this Akita dog would journey to Shibuya Station to wait for his owner to arrive back from his daily commute. One day his owner did not return from work, having suffered a fatal cerebral hemorrhage. This did not deter Hachiko though, who returned to the same spot to wait for his owner every day for the next nine years.

Okonomiyaki is a popular pan fried food that consists of batter and cabbage. Selected toppings and ingredients are added which can vary greatly (anything from meat and seafood to wasabi and cheese). This variability is reflected in the dish's name; "okonomi" literally means "to one's liking". The dish is available all over Japan, but is most popular in the west, particularly the cities of Hiroshima and Osaka.

Tamiko Nishimura / Eternal Chase / Grafica - 2012
1/2 « Nishimura's eternal chase is a collection of images shot in between the years 1970-1983. The selected photographs within this publication take us along the travels and wanderings of her youth. Taken in and around northeastern Tohoku as well as the Kanto, Hokuriku and Kansai regions of Japan. The images are grainy, putting aside the aesthetics of perfect compositions and correct exposures to make way for images which capture a direct immediacy pulling the viewer into Nishimura's lived experience. »
More spreads from a previously shared favorite photo book of mine: Tamiko Nishimura’s “My Journey (Ryojin)“ (jap.: “旅人“). This book was published in a limited edition of 500 copies by Zen Foto Gallery. Nishimura's latest photobook displays 60 black and white photographs on 120 pages that were taken during 1968 to the 1980s. Ultimately, the book very much feels like a journey through the different decades. One can sense the time passing with each and every photograph. Subject matter is varied, featuring everything from rural villages, to people in the streets of the big cities, as well as snow covered mountains and landscapes. Essentially, the photographs capture the essence and different states one undergoes during being on the road; seeing and experiencing unique excerpts of time and life. “I take photographs, load the film into a developing reel and develop the films in a deep tray as I hear the clattering sound. Then I print contact sheets, select the images and make prints from them. This practice has also never changed for decades. The images would slowly appear in the developer, and the black becomes denser. I like the time I spend in the dark room observing how the objects captured would appear during the development process.“ - Tamiko Nishimura
Her work surely never disappoints, and this must be one of my favorite photobooks thus far this year. I can only repeat what I have previously said about her publication “Shikishima“: Nishimura’s work may be, at first, hard to get ones head around; the photographs are taken from odd angels and the content is sometimes even hard to describe. One can almost feel the excitement of discovery and novelty she must have felt when she took the photos while traveling through the unknown. Ultimately, this is a fragmentary collection of memories captured right in the moment they were created, influenced by Nishimura’s state during the act of pressing the shutter.
Naoya Hatakeyama / Rikuzentakata / Light Motiv - 2016
2/2 « Le 11 mars 2011, un tremblement de terre a frappé le Japon et généré un puissant tsunami qui a balayé les villes dans le nord-est du pays, détruisant pratiquement tout dans son chemin. Naoya Hatakeyama est touché personnellement par ce drame dans lequel il perd sa mère et la maison familiale. Rikuzentakata place le lecteur à côté du photographe qui observe la naissance d’un monde inconnu dans le bruit des engins de construction. » @naoya.hatakeyama#japanesephotographer#japanesephotography#japanesephotobook#rikuzentakata#japanesetsunami
