@ Petersen, Anders




Presentation by T&M Projects:

[adapted by L'Ascenseur Végétal]

" Anders Petersen photographed Okinawa, the island in southern Japan famous for its traditional Ryukyu culture, beautiful beaches, and American bases; it is his first series made in an Asian country. He was invited by the European Eyes on Japan project in 2000 for a three-week residence.

Petersen's Okinawan pictures were shown in Okinawa in 2000, and a catalogue including work from other photographers was published on the occasion. Only a few images were included in his other books, and almost all the images in this book are unpublished before.

He briefly researched Okinawan history before his visit there, and he thought « How can you possibly handle this information as a person, and as a photographer? » With his anxiety, he has photographed the street (Kokusai Dori: the main street in Naha city), people, and small animals.

With respect and love, he beautifully and wonderfully withdraws the strengths of his subjects in Okinawa. "
