VERTICAL, (DOMAIN) by Hitoshi Tsukiji [RARE / SIGNED]

日本人写真家、築地仁の私家版写真集「垂直状の、(領域)築地仁|写真 1969-1975」。欧米の写真動向に多くを学んだ作者は、被写体の歴史性、物語性、出来事性に頼り、それらを説明・描写することに力を割く情緒的な写真のあり方に異を唱え、写真独自の表現意識の問題に切り込むべく、本書を制作。写真にはごく限られた範囲の事象しか写す事ができないという認識の下まとめられた作品群は、その限られた中でいかに世界を見、また気付くことができるかという写真意識の提示への関心と意欲に溢れており、事物の波動に対する写真家の眼の反応が、両観音開きという特異な写真集の形状において円環の形で記録されている。装丁家・菊地信義によるブックデザイン。

Tsukiji, who had learned much from photographic trends in Europe and the U.S., opposed emotional photographs that merely explained and portrayed their subjects, which in turn provided the images’ history, narrative, and event. In 1975, he self-published Vertical, (DOMAIN) to pursue expressions unique to the photographic medium. The works in this book, which were collected with the attitude that photographs can only capture a limited range of phenomena, exuded an interest in and desire to propose how photographs might take note of and visualize the world within the medium’s limitations. Uniquely formatted as a series of gatefolds, the book documents the photographer’s ocular responses to the pulses of things in circular form.
