Remarques & avis / Review — Impressive and superb gallery of portraits in black, by Yukata TAKANASHI, of all the artistic Japanese avant-garde of the 1950s-70s, from Yukio MISHIMA, Jinichi UEKUSA, Tatsumi HIJIKATA to Akiyuki NOSAKA, Masuo IKEDA and even a few sportsmen. The "Provoke" spirit is very present (the oldest pictures were taken in 1968) in the exposure, framework and treatment of the shots — strong constrast and a few blurs — and gives the portraits a very peculiar and much fortunate touch.

Impressionnante et superbe galerie de portraits en noir, par TAKANASHI Yukata, de toute l'avant-garde artistique japonaise des années 1950-70, de MISHIMA Yukio, UEKUSA Jinichi, HIJIKATA Tatsumi, à NOSAKA Akiyuki, IKEDA Masuo et même quelques sportifs. L'esprit "Provoke" est très présent (les portraits les plus anciens datent de 1968) dans l'exposition, le cadrage et traitement des clichés — fort contraste et quelques flous—, et donne au portraits une touche très particulière et fort bien-venue.
