For today, I’ve opted to recommend some photography that isn’t quite as recent.  Yutaka Takanashi is a photographer and co-founder of the experimental Japanese magazine Provoke.  Though the magazine itself had a short run (founded in 1968, the magazine later disbanded in 1970) it is still considered to be influential.

Rather than talking about these photos myself though, allow me to suggest:

  1. Yutaka Takanashi – Towards the City (including a short history of the “Provoke” era) Part i and ii
  2. Provoke: Takuma Nakahira and Yutaka Takanashi
