„In 1968 the photographer and writer Nakahira Takuma (1938-) along with a select group of artists and writers published a magazine entitled 'Provoke'. Responding to the social and cultural upheavals of the late sixties and early seventies, the participating photographers searched for a radically new photographic language. “Visual images cannot represent the totality of an idea, nor are they interchangeable like words,” exclaimed the manifesto in the first issue of the magazine. “However, their irreversible materiality - reality cut out by the camera - belongs to the reverse side of the world of language.” Nakahira's 'For a Language to Come' is clearly a programmatic effort and represents a turning point in post-war Japanese photography. The artist explores the power of photography to express that which remains unspoken. Remnants of language are still apparent in his work. This publication had a print run of only 1,000 copies." (Titus Boeder)
