Daido Moriyama was born in 1938 and has worked as a graphic designer and as an assistant to Eikoh Hosoe. His work has been included in all of the international exhibitions of Japanese photography and his original style has greatly affected the course of modern photography in Japan. Mark Holborn was born in London in 1949. His book on Japanese landscape, The Ocean in the Sand, was published in 1978. The book's full title is BLACK SUN:The Eyes of Four. The four are some of the most eminent photographers originating from Japan: Hosoe, Tomatsu, Fukase, Moriyama. Their pictures are not about pretense.

Japanese photography abounds, yet we have few published monographs that chart . Also included is Mark Haworth-Booth's essay on the Japanese photographic climate.

Japanese photography abounds, yet we have few published monographs that chart the growth of art photography in that country. To help fill this gap, Aperture has just published an unusual anthology of work by four of Japan's leading photographers. Shomei Tomatsu has been absorbed with documenting the effects of the nuclear bombings of Japan along with other newsworthy events. Masahisa Fukase has produced an epic series on crows as a symbol of evil.

Black Sun is an unprecedented portrait of postwar Japan through the eyes of four of the nation's most significant photographers. Shomei Tomatsu was born in 1930 and has established a reputation internationally with a form of photography which is both intensely personal and documentary. It encompasses and connects ancient Japanese prophecies, the terror of nuclear destruction, and the results of swift and massive westernization. Eikoh Hosoe, Shomei Tomatsu, Masahisa Fukase, and Daido Moriyama are widely acknowledged in Japan as masters of photography. His first book 11:02 Nagasaki (1966) revealed his extraordinary vision.

Eikoh Hosoe's work was particularly stunning. Most of the photos had either historical significance or did a great job of reflecting the work of the particular photographer

Students and practitioners of sound recording since the 1960s have relied. Eikoh Hosoe's work was particularly stunning. Most of the photos had either historical significance or did a great job of reflecting the work of the particular photographer. Many of them were the types of photos I wish I could take-strange, spontaneous, and rare.

Japanese photography: Eikoh Hosoe, Shomei Tomatsu, Masahisa Fukase, and Daido Moriyama.

Black Sun: The Eyes of Four presents four artists whose works form a vital core of post-war Japanese photography: Eikoh Hosoe, Shomei Tomatsu, Masahisa Fukase, and Daido Moriyama. The 160 photographs chosen for the exhibition range from the metaphoric to the documentary, from the presentation of the horrific legacy of Nagasaki to visually dense cityscapes. Black Sun: The Eyes of Four, on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art from August 9 to October 26, 1986, presents four artists whose works form a vital core of post-war Japanese photography: Eikoh Hosoe, Shomei Tomatsu, Masahisa Fukase, and Daido Moriyama.

"The photographs as "ruins" and the "ruins" in the photographs overlap and when the newly emanated feeling for time is marked into the center of the photographs, the ruins are not the carcasses of destruction and devastation, but turn away from being coffins, symbols of death, and move the hub to the mysterious stage of life."--Shunji ItoBlack Sun is an unprecedented portrait of postwar Japan through the eyes of four of the nation's most significant photographers. It encompasses and connects ancient Japanese prophecies, the terror of nuclear destruction, and the results of swift and massive westernization.Eikoh Hosoe, Shomei Tomatsu, Masahisa Fukase, and Daido Moriyama are widely acknowledged in Japan as masters of photography. Their work ranges from the metaphoric to the documentary, from the presentation of post-apocalyptic artifacts to portraits of crows and crowded city streets. However varied the approach, this work is unified by a sense of innovation and a persistent search for native roots.Eikoh Hosoe's representation of the demonic myth Kamaitachi is structured like a dance, enacted among the villagers of the far north country and evoking Hosoe's childhood memories of the final years of World War II.Shomei Tomatsu's work ranges from the legacy of Nagasaki to the student riots of the sixties. His photographs combine social documentary with a search for personal identity, a quest which concludes among the remote islanders of Okinawa.Masahisa Fukase's epic series Crow adopts the universal symbol of the black bird as evil omen. The crow's somber presence shadows Fukase's journey to his birthplace on the northern island of Hokkaido, fusing private memories to a darker, national heritage.Daido Moriyama uncovers the malice lurking in the alleys and backstreets of Tokyo. With his confrontational, highly graphic style, Moriyama reveals the overpowering density of life in modern Japan.In the accompanying text, Mark Holborn creates his own picture of Japan's creative climate, one in which audacious exploration crashes against a legacy of tradition and refinement. He s20provides previously undocumented links between the photographers and other leading Japanese artists of our time, such as filmmaker Nagisa Oshima, graphic designer Tadanori Yokoo, and dancer Tatsumi Hijikata.Ultimately, the dark lyricism of Black Sun serves as both cultural introduction and global prophecy. The shadow cast by these four photographers stretches beyond the shores of Japan and across the entire length of contemporary experience.
