Akaaka, Tokyo

Photograph: Jiro Takamatsu

Jiro Takamatsu is one of the main figures of the Japanese avant-garde of the 1960s onward, having participated in the seminal artists’ collective High Red Center (1963-64) and approached the Mono-Ha movement (1967–1979). The “photographs of photographs,” shown in the 1973 edition of the Bienal de São Paulo, were made in collaboration with a professional photographer based on photos from the artist’s personal, family archive. The procedure plays with photography’s temporal dimension and with memory, while also relating the images with other scenes and “real” objects: a hand, a ruler, a work shelf, a doorstop.
