For over a half century, Japanese sociodocumentary photographer Motohashi Seiichi (b. 1940) has combined still images and filmmaking to capture and investigate subjects ranging from Japanese coal miners to city street scenes, along with three comprehensive books and two documentaries on Chernobyl. This first-time in-depth retrospective of Seiichis career at the IZU Photographic Museum, Japan, and the expansive exhibition catalog covers nine bodies of work, from 1960 to 2014. Seiichis oeuvre brings to mind the work of internationally recognized Japanese photographers Daido Moriyama and Shomei Tomatsu, but once immersed in Seiichis graphically raw black-and-white investigations, one sees a unique and brilliant vision emerge. Highlights include two unpublished early series, Ofuyu and Yoron, along with noted series The Coal Mine, Ueno Station, Slaughterhouse, Performance East and West, Circus, Chernobyl and a new work, Arayashiki. A detailed artists chronology along with a complete title list of all 260 full-bleed black-and-white images assist in tracking this fascinating artist and career.
