Galerie in)(between in Paris prominently features contemporary Japanese photography and is spotlighting two photographers who are heirs of the cultural and visual revolution of the 1960s: Chotoku Tanaka and Takehiko Nakafuji. It is dedicating two personal exhibitions to them and is offering a cross-examination of their views of Tokyo.

These two masters of contrasting black and white film photography share deep affinities with photographers from PROVOKE and CAMP, particularly a very spontaneous and intuitive practice of shooting, most often in big cities. Coarse grain, high-contrast, offset camera angles, their shots are affiliated with the are-bure-boke style, literally “rough, blurred, out of focus”, established by Daido Moriyama. More than the result of a thoughtful and matured design, their photographs express an intuitive reaction, sparked by immersive, random strolls.

Both Tokyo natives, Chotoku Tanaka and Takehiko Nakafuji maintain a unique relationship with their hometown with which they experiment in their photographic work.
