Tamiko Nishimura "Voyage"
Zen Foto Gallery is pleased to announce its new publication "Voyage" by Tamiko Nishimura, including approximately 220 monochrome works taken by the photographer in Asia and Europe from around 1987 to 2018. While “Voyage” mainly features Nishimura’s unpublished works, the book will also include a number of photographs from the series “Photo travelogue - Kaido” she published in the 90’s for the literary magazine “Gekko” founded by Tanka poet Yasuki Fukushima.
This book is comprised of photographs taken in Hong Kong in the '80s, Portugal, Nederland, United Kingdom and Turkey in the '90s, Vietnam, Vienna, Paris, Korea and Qingdao in the 2000s, Rome and Prague taken in the recent years, streets of Paris taken on the day after Paris attacks in November 2015, and more. Nishimura continues to capture works with a stance that never change no matter where she is, which can be found in her afterword “Travels and Memory.” Nishimura’s photography, revealing what is beyond a journey, is a manifold portrait of life wherever she encounters.
