Ikko Narahara can be called one of Japan’s most modernist photographers, his photographs and books finding much favour even outside of Japan. He was born in 1931 in the Fukuoka Prefecture and started photographing around 1946.
He fits well into the modern, Japanese tradition of photography, which found its own language, sufficiently distinct from the aesthetic and practice in the West. Choosing to use black and white in his expression, Narahara reveals the similarities of living conditions, much to the surprise of the viewer.
