Remarques & avis / ReviewYurie NAGASHIMA's imposing Pastime Paradise is not a simple retrospective of her photographic work since her fantastic first photobook Yurie Nagashima (1995): it displays numerous previously unpublished pictures and starts with her first daring exhibitions of familial nudes, goes on with shots from the period of her first publications, mainly these crude, inventive and superb self-portraits, friends and family again (from the Kazoku and Empty White Room series), her university travel and stay in the United States, in portraits and landscapes, her return, friends and relations (we may recognize Nobuyoshi ARAKI, Nan GOLDIN, HIROMIX...) and her boyfriend / husband (this series will be published in Not Six in 2004), travels, cities and beaches... An excellent panorama of these eight years, well crafted, which would have deserved a hardcover nonetheless, and won the prestigious Kimura Ihei Award in 2000.

L'imposant Pastime Paradise de NAGASHIMA Yurie n'est pas une simple rétrospective de son œuvre photographique depuis son fantastique premier photo-book Yurie Nagashima (1995) : il propose nombre photos inédites et commence avec celles de ses premières expositions, osées, de nus familiaux, se poursuit par des clichés du temps de ses premières publications, principalement ces auto-portraits crus, inventifs et superbes, amis et famille à nouveau (des séries Kazoku et Empty White Room), son voyage universitaire aux États-Unis, en portraits et paysages, son retour, ses amis et relations (l'on peut apercevoir ARAKI Nobuyoshi, Nan GOLDIN, HIROMIX...) et son petit ami / mari (cette série sera publiée dans Not Six en 2004), voyages, villes et plages... Un excellent aperçu de ces huit années, bien réalisé, qui aurait toutefois bien mérité une couverture rigide, et remporta le prestigieux prix Kimura Ihei en 2000.
