Japan's Modern Divide

These photographers embody two sides of modern Japanese life: the traditional and the forward looking, the rural and the urban, the Eastern and the Western. Both artists grew up during the brief Taishō era (1912–1926), a period of industrialization and experimentation that ushered in the modern Shōwa era (1926–1989). It was during this time, between the international Depression and World War II, that Hamaya began to document regional traditions and social issues, primarily on the country's rugged "back coast" along the Sea of Japan.

On connaît bien les Sand Dunes de Shoji Ueda, ces mises en scène à tonalité surréalisante dans les dunes de sable de sa région natale de Tottori, débutées dans les années trente.

Nearby, steam rises from hot springs, adding a sense of drama. On the opposite side of the bench sits a young man dressed in black, his back turned to the lens. He gives a sideways glance, almost as if he knows he is being watched. The two have inadvertently become actors in a form of theater of the everyday documented by the photographer Issei Suda. File 8: "Kamagasaki" by Seiryu Inoue, 1985, reviewed by Natsuko Oda. Most of the photos were taken secretly, or taken without looking at the viewfinder, in order to avoid any possible conflict with Kamagasaki residents.

The photos are therefore out of focus, and the compositions are often not fixed, although they successfully deliver the emotions of residents living in tough situations. The captured images are sensational; a woman, maybe a sex worker, is loitering on the street. A man, who maybe relieved himself, is exposing his back hip on the side of the road.

MARK COHEN - Attention aux détails

Loin de toute intention documentaire, le photographe a cherché, en déambulant encore et toujours dans les mêmes rues pendant près de quarante ans, son Leica à la main, à fouiller les corps et en extraire des fragments. Point de visage, point de rencontre. Mais des entrées en collision avec ses sujets, qui tentent de rendre compte de la beauté élémentaire des lignes et des formes.

Fotografia na świecie: Japonia, cz. 2 - Wersja mobilna

Odizolowane do tej pory państwo zaczęło z olbrzymią szybkością adaptować zachodnią technologię, obyczaje i kulturę. Nie pozostało to bez znaczenia również dla fotografii. Bardzo długo żywe było wśród japońskich fotografów zainteresowanie piktorializmem – miękkie kształty, malarskie formy, inscenizowane sceny padły tu na podatny grunt.
