"Shuji Terayama Museum is pleased to host a joint exhibition by photographers Daido Moriyama & Hiroyasu Nakai from April 4 to September 25, 2016. After the sudden death of Nakai in February 2016, Moriyama, a friend of Nakai's for over 40 years, carefully selected photographs from approximately 500 of Nakai's original prints. North Point is the result of this edit.
Hiroyasu Nakai was born in Hachinohe City, Aomori in 1955. He participated in Eikoh Hosoe's WORKSHOP photo school in 1976. Upon graduation, he began a new chapter in his life as a photographer and became a member of CAMP, an artist-run photo group and gallery headed by Moriyama. After he left CAMP, he independently established a photo gallery Hokuten (North Point) in his hometown in 1988, and began showing his own work in a series of exhibitions. North Point features photos taken in Hachinoche City during Nakai's time there.
Regarding Nakai's pictures Moriyama has said that they are « neither honest reporting nor his love for his hometown. The photographer Hiroyuki Nakai integrated himself into his environment with a deep understanding. »
Nakai's perspectives of Hachinohe City are expressed in the publication of North Point, published by Roshin books with the assistance of Satoshi Machiguchi, a Japanese art director. North Point will surely be regarded as a historically important contribution to the world of photography."
