Takashi Arai “MONUMENTS”
the prize winning work for the 41th Kimura Ihei Award
Being exposed in a hundred suns – Takashi Arai’s first monograph “MONUMENTS”
Beginning in 2010, when he first became interested in nuclear issues, Arai has used the daguerreotype technique to create individual records—micro-monuments—of his encounters with surviving crew members, and the salvaged hull, of the fallout-contaminated Daigo Fukuryumaru fishing boat, records that touch upon the fragmented reality of events in the past. This project led him to photograph the deeply interconnected subjects of Fukushima, Hiroshima, Nagasaki.
