Remarques & avis / Review — It is here Yurie NAGASHIMA's stunning entrance into the photobook world, with this eponymous photobook of nude self-portraits staged in subtle and outrageous ways, with a touch of self-derision and sentiment, that caused a scandal and many a copycat when published, and thrust the young girl into the forefront of the contemporary Japanese photography scene. The shots, of various techniques, are surprisingly laid out, the thematical series come alternated and intertwined, resulting in a suggestive contrast of the best rendering. A beautiful breath of fresh air and a rejuvenating kick in the genre!

C'est ici l'époustouflante entrée en photographie de NAGASHIMA Yurie (1973-), avec ce livre éponyme d'auto-portraits nus en mises en scènes subtiles et délirantes, avec une touche d'auto-dérision et de sentiments, qui fit scandale et moultes émules à sa sortie, et propulsa la jeune fille au devant de la scène de la photographie japonaise contemporaine. Les clichés, de techniques diverses, sont surprenamment agencés, les séries thématiques de photographies s'entre-croisant, pour un contraste suggestif du meilleur effet. Un beau bol d'air frais et coup de pied dépoussiérant au genre !
