Koji Onaka - Extra Hard, Matatabi Library, 2014, Tokyo

 

Softcover, edition of 250 copies, signed.

When I was 22 years old, I came accross some photo paper called "GEKKO VR-4". Similar to a distortion effects pedal for a guitar, anything could be changed into hard contrast with this magic paper. With this, I thought I would become like Daido Moriyama. I was happy rapidly making a lot of hard prints. If I had made these prints one year ago, I think that all the photography school teachers would be pretty angry! I thought that the harder the print is, the cooler it is. However, this is because I was a member of the image shop "CAMP" then. (Koji Onaka)
