Presentation by Light Motiv:
"On March 11th, 2011, a powerful tsunami hit the northeastern coast of Japan, destroying nearly everything on its way. The photographer Naoya Hatakeyama was personally affected as his hometown, Rikuzentaka, was wiped away, along with the markers of his memories.
Kesengawa, published by Light Motiv in 2013, was a book about the stupefaction following the destruction of the coastal cities.
Rikuzentakata is the intimate story of Naoya Hatakeyama observing the birth of an unknown world in the din of construction machinery. Facing this transformation, the texts and photographs of Naoya Hatakeyama meet to evoke a possible way, to contemplate a possible future.
« Rikuzentakata is about the same size as Kesengawa : comparing these two books, I would like to try and catch the difference of feeling between the time of Kesengawa and now. The person I was at the time was totally unable to picture what could be the future landscape of Rikuzentaka. It is probably too early to speak about a "future", but I still wish to show the new book to the person I was then. "Look, time has not stopped!" This is how I want to comfort myself. »
