見続ける涯に火が… 批評集成1965-1977 by 中平卓馬


A review collection by Japanese photographer Takuma Nakahira.

Nakahira is known for launching the photo coterie magazine PROVOKE, the photo book For Coming Words, and the still influential photo critic Why, Botanical Encyclopedia? I am a photographer. After graduating from the Spanish Department of Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, he worked as an editor for the general magazine Gendai no Me before becoming a photographer. I left an important text. This book is the definitive edition that contains those texts in chronological order, and can be said to be a must-read book for studying and thinking about photography.
