Takuma Nakahira (1938-2015), Japanese critic, essayist and photographer, is one of the leading figures of the avant-garde movements of the 1960s and 1970s, the author of mythical works such as Kitarubeki kotoba no tame ni (For a Language to Come, 1970). Even so, Nakahira remains an enigmatic figure in the world of photography: his work is that of an iconoclast bent on questioning all preconceived ideas about the image, of a thought-provoker who constantly poses questions in order to shake the foundations of what we took for granted, of a critic and political activist who approaches photography in search of new tools with which to assemble his critical apparatus. Thus, in Nakahira’s work, critical practice is inseparable from photographic practice […].
