Kenji Ishiguro - Hiroshima Now. ( 石黒 健治 広島 -石黒健治作品集1 ), Shin ya sosho sha, 1970, Tokio

 

Hardcover with dust jacket, signed. Text by Tadanori Yokoo, Hideo Nakai. Pictures taken between 1965 and 1966.

"… it seems to me that his Hiroshima does not simply relate to us a story of atomized Hiroshima but some sense of terror far apart from Hiroshima itself. Mr. Ishiguro did not just take pictures of Hiroshima as it was razed by an atomic bomb but described for us a more primitive type of fear we have in our innermost heart… His Hiroshima tells me that all pictures must begin with Hiroshima and end with it… Hiroshima Now reveals our remembrance of objects whose shadows are the shadow of the bomb. This remembrance is the eternal scar upon our Japanese mind.". (Tadanori Yokoo, from the afterword)
