秋の展覧会が「アサヒカメラ」「芸術新潮」にて特集されています!

K・MoPAにて、この秋開催の「大原治雄 —ブラジルの光、家族の風景」展が、発売中の『アサヒカメラ』と『芸術新潮』にて特集されています。同展は、4月9日から高知県立美術館にて開催され、その後伊丹市美術館、K・MoPAと巡回します。10月22日(土)までしばしお待ちくださいませ。

大原治雄は、1927年、17歳で高知県から集団移民としてブラジルへ渡りました。パラナ州ロンドリーナにて未開拓の地を耕し、コーヒー農園を営みます。28歳の頃、小型カメラを購入すると、写真に没頭。家族や仲間との農作業の合間に撮影した写真の発表を重ねるうち、徐々に評価され、大きな個展が開催されるほどとなりました。没後、作品・資料がモレイラ・サーレス美術振興財団に寄贈され、「日本人のブラジル移住100周年記念事業」の一環でブラジル国内を巡回した展覧会には12万人が来場。生涯日本に帰国することのなかった大原の初の里帰り展覧会となります。どうぞお楽しみに!

THE JUDGES COMMENT (TRANSLATION)

Booklet pages 10-11:

・TAKAKURA Daisuke

We can feel something ominous and doppelgänger-like lying beneath this buoyant image. (Kitajima)

・Alena ZHANDAROVA

The attraction of these works lies in their constitutive elements and the gap between the acting and the non-acting. (Kitajima)

・SAKAGUCHI Mariko

To get in the bath this brazenly takes a lot of guts. All I can say is, ‘well done!’ (Moriyama)

・WONG Wei Chung

The difficulty with this kind of photograph is that if it does not contain some element of surprise, it is simply classified as ‘interesting’.  After that the photographer has to think about himself and move in the direction his thoughts take him.  From these possibilities, I have selected a work that will arouse the imagination and surpass the creator’s original intention.(Kitajima)

 

Booklet pages 12-13:

・Russell Scott PEAGLER

The photographer has given thought as to how to create a visual depiction that expresses the harshness of this harsh world. I salute him for his desire to express this. (Hosoe)

・Nandita RAMAN

This work, including the impression of faded colors, talks to us of the objects themselves. (Moriyama)

・K. M. ASAD

He displays a highly refined snapshot technique. The expression on the face of the widow in this work is wonderful. (Kitajima)

Booklet pages 14-15:

・Alicja DOBRUCKA

Tents and high-rise buildings, this combination of the two is interesting. The disconnect with reality is superb. (Kitajima)

・TAGUCHI Noboru

An all-over image: the way that color and objects overflow from the picture is interesting. (Kitajima)

The world he captures creates quite a real view; it is like looking at a strange picture book of a southern island. (Moriyama)

・Shinya Itahana

There are all kinds of landscapes and scenes, but I think that landscapes converge on people. If you can see a person, you know that there is a landscape behind them. (Moriyama)

・Natthaphon CHAIWORAWAT

This is a totally impossible landscape. It is not necessarily surrealistic, but it is strange for the way in which the unsteady path he took to reach there is luridly clear. (Hosoe)

Booklet pages 16-17:

・Elizabeth HAUST

We can’t compete with the eccentricities of foreigners. All of this is good. (Moriyama)

She tries to make it bizarre and meaningful, but it is also attractive. She possesses an extremely strong power of expression. (Hosoe)

・Dorota WRÓBLEWSKA

With camera shake and extreme blow-ups, these works capture enigmatic images and allow us a glimpse of the mysterious ‘layers’ that photography possesses. (Moriyama)

・Vladyslav KRASNOSHCHOK

These are strange photographs. He seems to be very introverted and suffering. (Hosoe)

They possess a dramatic interest; it was like looking at a scene from a play. (Moriyama)

Booklet pages 18-19:

・Tokyo Rumando

We have seen examples of women taking photographs of themselves in various situations for some time now and many of them can be said to be stereotyped, but these stand out and are good. They go beyond the usual. (Moriyama)

・Sim CHANG

Rather than a contemporary background, this picture combines historic or traditional culture with the present day, all in one fell swoop, and its simplicity is what makes it interesting. (Kitajima)

・Minhee AHN

I have never seen anybody who has done this before. It resembles a human hand. I don’t know if it should be described as avant-garde, antisocial, or anti-art. Manic creativity is frightening. (Hosoe)

・Mariya KOZHANOVA

Depending on the context, this can be described as either immoral, or moral. Its ambiguity is interesting. (Hosoe)

Booklet pages 20-21:

・MATSUI Yasunori

The lion and leopard are good. I have never seen this kind of image in animal photography before. (Moriyama)

・NAITO Yoko

When I am confronted with a view like this, I am unable to do anything. I can only sum up my feelings by saying, ‘Thank you for showing it to us!’ (Moriyama)

・Hao LI

Both concept and technique show a high degree of perfection. I think that the size is also just right. (Kitajima)

The intersection or conflict that exists between the interesting shape and its reality. Artistically it is fascinating. (Hosoe)

・Darren RIGO

Natural and artificial, nature and photograph, I find the interest in this work lies in the juxtaposition of multiple layers. (Kitajima)

Booklet pages 22-23:

・Ismail FERDOUS

It resembles the bible. This classicism. It even has a feeling of the kind of work that used to be produced by Italian artists. This could become a great masterpiece. (Hosoe)

・HAYASHI Noriko

Extremely professional. (Hosoe)

The look in their eyes leaves me speechless. (Kitajima)

・KATO Keisuke

The scent of the world in this photograph mingles with that of the photographer to create a strange sexuality. (Moriyama)

It is not the kind of realism that aims to expose, the overall atmosphere is very rich and I like it. (Kitajima)

Booklet pages 24-25:

・NAKA Yuki

Street snapshots are unexpectedly difficult. But I think these have been taken well, they capture the scene beautifully and present a good image of Paris. (Moriyama)

・ISHIKURA Tokuhiro

I was amazed by his ability to find interesting people in the streets. I think it must be difficult to both search for and get permission to photograph them. The people he photographs all have dignity. The way he meets them is good too. (Kitajima)

・Julio BITTENCOURT

Looking at many photographs sequentially, some of them stand out for their distinctiveness and that is what makes these works interesting. Individually, their degree of finish, as single pictorial works, is also very high. (Kitajima)

Booklet pages 26-27:

・TASHIRO Kazutomo

He captures people living in that area (the site of the Great East Japan Earthquake) within the landscape perfectly. The photographs are not explanatory, but the fact that he has managed to take so many, shows the energy and devotion he feels towards photography. This is transmitted through the work. (Moriyama)

・OKAHARA Kosuke

I would like people to look carefully at these photographs together with records of the Great East Japan Earthquake. (Hosoe)

Every photograph, no matter what, contains memories connected to all those who see them. (Moriyama)

Booklet pages 28-29:

・KITADA Yoshinobu

He depicts various localities in today’s Japan beautifully, I like them. (Moriyama)

・IWAMOTO Satoru

The procession shown in this photograph goes beyond the circumstances of the festival to create a beautiful image. (Kitajima)

・IMAMURA Takuma

I like its casualness. We are able to discern all kinds of things within the forthright viewpoint it presents. It depicts the state of Japan’s everyday life and it is interesting for the way in which we gradually realize the time that flows through it. (Moriyama)

・TOMIYA Masako

The atmosphere of the Tsugaru area of northeastern Japan is not exaggerated but transmitted quite gently through this work, creating a photograph with a highly favorable impression. (Kitajima)

Booklet pages 30-31:

・YUBAI Yoshitsugu

I think that he has captured the gay neighborhood of San Francisco well. It is difficult to photograph this well. He has taken an inside approach and really put his heart into it. (Moriyama)

I was amazed (at the subjects), he was not flustered when he took the pictures, but accepted the situation and moved deeper into it. I think they are joyful photographs taken from a sympathetic viewpoint. (Kitajima)

・NISHIMURA Takashi

The way in which he gives birth to an ‘ultimate’ image is great. (Kitajima)

I like it. The physiology, the constitution, the tenacity that this person possesses is everything. There is something strange about him. (Moriyama)
