AS FAR AS CLOSE by Dudi Hasson

イスラエル人フォトグラファー、デュディ・ハッソン(Dudi Hasson)の作品集。幼い頃から写真に魅了され、16歳で本格的に写真に取り組み独学で写真の腕を磨いてきた。以来、親密と疎外との間に渡る細い線のようなものを探ってきた。人物や場所からインスピレーションを受け、カメラと被写体、あるいはテーマとその主題そのもの、あるいは自身とカメラとの間に内面的に生じる関係性の本質に関心を寄せ続けている。愛と憎悪、喜びと悲しみ、真実と嘘、近さと遠さなどものとものの「間」にある稀有な瞬間を捉えようと試みる。本書は、異なる時間・場所で作者が撮影したポートレイト群から選んだ作品を収録。独特の美的感覚と視点を最も良く表現できている、予想もしなかった瞬間をモザイクのように集めた一作。イスラエル出身の詩人であるノーム・ノイ(Noam Noy)によるヘブライ語の詩と、その英訳も掲載。

“Addicted” to photography from a very young age, autodidact photographer Dudi Hasson (b. 1981, Israeli) embarked on his photographic journey at the age of 16. Ever since then, his work has explored the thin line between intimacy and alienation. Inspired by people and places, Hasson is continually curious about the nature of relationships—whether they’re between the camera and its subject, between the subjects themselves, or internally between himself and the camera. Dudi strives to capture rare moments of the “in-between”, i.e. in between love and hate, joy and misery, truth and lies, far and close.

As Far As Close is a selected collection of Hasson’s portraits from different times and places, gathered as a mosaic of unexpected moments best demonstrating his unique aesthetics and point of view.

The book contains a poem, in Hebrew, written by poet Noam Noy (b. 1988, Israeli), alongside an English translation.
