Just arrived this week from Japanese publisher Osiris, one of the most anticipated republications in recent memory, the legendary, For a Language to Come
by Takuma Nakahira. First published in 1970, For a Language to Come
marks a distinct turning point in the history of Japanese photography, heavily influencing what subsequently became the stark hallmark aesthetic mostly associated with his contemporaries Daido Moriyama and Nobuyoshi Araki. Due to the extreme rarity of the original publication, this work has been largely inaccessible for decades — its republication is a wonderful opportunity to reexamine what has rightly been hailed a masterpiece. Copies now in stock.
Also just arrived this week, An American Journey: In Robert Frank's Footsteps
a film from French director Philippe Seclier. In this new documentary, Seclier has precisely retraced Frank's cross-country travels which ultimately became that canonical masterpiece, The Americans
. Through this 15,000 mile recreation, Seclier examines the broader cultural implications of Frank's seminal work, tracking down his subjects and interviewing a range of artists, historians and curators, including painter Ed Rusha. Copies on DVD now in stock.
