Takuma Nakahira, “For a Language to Come”

An aura of mystery has always surrounded this book. Published in 1969, it became a legend in Japan. The original, however, was known to only a few specialists in the West until it was republished by Christoph Schifferli. The third edition was published this year by Osiris in Tokyo and has a cover that is reminiscent of Vasarely. Well printed and with accompanying essays by the philosopher, author and avant-garde artist Nakahira, this book is an intelligent re-interpretation of a cult publication. Slight changes have been made to its format and it is scaled down in size. When considered alongside the equally radical Provoke classics of Moriyama and the more objective Toshi-E of Takanashi it stands out on account of the programmatic and consistent response it makes to a self-posed challenge, namely to establish photography as an independent language at the cost of everything previously thought or done. The raw pictures with their deep blacks and barely recognisable subjects may repel or entice the viewer, but their power and sensitivity cannot be denied.
