Introduction by Manabu Torihara @ CAPA

Manabu Torihara, a photography critic, introduced “Danca with Blanks” in the May issue of the photography magazine, CAPA.

A black-and-white snapshot of light and shadow with extreme prominence. There is a strong impact in the expression of metallic solidity. He seems to have stripped away as much of the superfluous stuff as possible, exposing the physiological sense. A book that should be savored more for its rhythm than for its photographic meaning.


写真評論家の鳥原学氏に、「Danca with Blanks」を写真雑誌キャパ 5月号にてご紹介いただきましたので採録します。

「光と影を極端に際立たせたモノクロのスナップショット。金属的な硬質さを感じさせる表現には、強い衝撃力がある。余計なものを極力そぎ落とし、写真家の生理感覚をむき出しにしているようだ。写真の意味よりもリズムを味わうべき一冊」
