石川竜一《okinawan portraits 2010-2012》簽名本
Okinawa has been a much photographed place, and many photographers have used Okinawa as their subject. Ishikawa’s photographs are different from those that focus on Okinawan features; his concern does not stop at Okinawa itself, but extends to its people. He faces the local people directly, for he believes that the land will reflect itself in the photographs naturally, without interference from the photographer. His pictures include close-up portraits that seemed so real that it might bleed if you prick them. The disabled and the marginalized are all treated equally in the book, which is like a song praising humanity that has no boundaries all around the world. Ishikawa is an uprising star in the photography scene, and he won the 40th Kimura Ihei Photography award in 2015.
Born in Okinawa in 1984, Ishiwaka's photographic works A Grand Polyphony and okinawan portraits 2010-2014 (published by AKAAKA) portrays Okinawa in all its forms through the refreshing and unique perspective of Ishikawa's lens. Since he began photography in 2006, Ishikawa has since exhibited his works widely in Japan and has published 5 photobooks.
