zine 004, zine 005, zine006, Justin的小小手工摄影书(真的是小哦,只有7.5cm宽,10cm高哟!)与季节的更替保持着一致的节奏,这位纽约生,纽约电影学院毕业的年青写真家,拍下的摄影作品好有镜头感。采用喷墨打印技术,手工装帧。朦胧模糊的基调,荒野的印记与怀旧的浓情,尼泊尔旅游途中遇见的孩子们,在广袤飘渺的大地之中,拍下干净天真的模样,在空气中,传来朗诵回音。50本限量制作,是温暖可爱zine的完美代表呢,香蕉鱼书店少量引进。

香蕉鱼书店的夏天推荐,每本都带摄影师亲笔写上的独立编号。

zine 004, zine 005, zine 006, a series of handmade zines that are released on a quarterly basis. each zine is in an edition of 50, and features 12 pages of images printed on hand selected stock.

New Arrival: Fro st by Hiroshi Kiyonaga

2011 / 06 / 18

东京住独立摄影师Hiroshi Kiyonaga的初次写真集[Fro st]。只身踏入北方之地,寂静的冻结期北国,霜雪覆盖下的原野,优雅、天真和坚韧,仿佛与世界隔离。脱离场景的惯常表达,清永洋的摄影作品让自然的原色通过光与影,细腻地述说一个落雪下隐匿之事,富有戏剧化。残忍、凶猛、铺天盖地,人与自然的对抗和融和。在时间和地点,天气和温度构造的情结里,切断的镜头忽而闪现,时间凝固在冰川中,树枝上,寒霜里。

Frost is the first independent book by Tokyo-based photographer Hiroshi Kiyonaga and contains the images he captured on his journey to the north-east region of Japan during the quiet mid-winter. The landscapes in Frost appear covered up, as if submerged by the blanket of snow. The book’s images are highly effective in showing nature as both pure, immaculate and innocent; and yet at the same time, as a severe, treacherous and unforgiving force. Kiyonaga’s photographs also capture the strong sense of humanity which continues to exist even in this harsh and remote environment. Rather than depicting nature in the more usual dramatic artistic terms; as a force of grandeur, ferociousness, cruelty and confrontation, the images in Frost provide a more stark and honest representation of the wild and unadorned reality of nature.

摄影师介绍:清永洋(Hiroshi Kiyonaga),1978年生于日本福冈。1998年毕业于九州艺术工科大学,2003年起成为自由职业摄影师。经常合作的杂志包括:「OZmagazine」、「MACPOWER」、「カメラ日和」、「日経WOMAN」、「GOETHE」、「Number」、「Re:S」。同时也多活跃于网络平台作品的发表和群展中。

Author Profile:

Hiroshi Kiyonaga is a Tokyo-based photographer, who has predominantly shot for magazines and textbooks, journals and essays. Since graduating in 2003, Kiyonaga has worked primarily as a freelance photographer.
