A collaboration between graphic designer Satoshi Machiguchi and Japanese photographer Sakiko Nomura.

“Sakiko Nomura: Ango” is part of a literary project by publisher and graphic designer Satoshi Machiguchi. In the space of a book, photographs by contemporary Japanese artists meet with works of Japanese literature to form a new kind of expression. After collaborating with Daido Moriyama for the first three entries in the series, Machiguchi decided to work with Sakiko Nomura for this fourth and latest issue. Sakiko Nomura’s stunning, sensual photographs interact with the 1946 short-story “The War and a Woman” by Ango Sakaguchi. Sakaguchi’s powerful story, heavily censored by the American authorities at the time of its release, describes a brutal and remorseless image of the crushing force that is war. Nomura’s images and Sakaguchi’s words interact to draw out new nuances in each other.

The French version is in a limited edition of 300 signed and numbered copies.

Les superbes photographies sensuelles de Sakiko Nomura interagissent avec la nouvelle de 1946 «La guerre et une femme» d’Ango Sakaguchi. La puissante histoire de Sakaguchi, fortement censurée par les autorités américaines au moment de sa publication, décrit une image brutale et impitoyable de la force écrasante qu’est la guerre. Les images de Nomura et les mots de Sakaguchi interagissent pour dessiner de nouvelles nuances les unes dans les autres.

L’édition française est limitée à 300 exemplaires signés et numérotés.
