Hajime Kimura - KODAMA, Mado-sha, 2012, Tokyo

 

With only 30 photos Hajime Kimura paints a dense picture of the "Matagi" tribe in grainy, high contrast black and white. Every single photo is so impressive it works alone without a story, without the book - it rarely happens to me...

Winner of the IPA Photo Book Asia Award 2013 (Published).

"I first heard of the "Matagi" civilization right after my third year of college. They were depicted as if coming from a completely different time and captivated my attention immediately. Now, seeing them represented through these images is like peeking back into a distant legend"
