‘New York Is’ documents renowned Japanese photographer Takayuki Ogawa’s experience in New York City in the late 1960s. In these images, his enthusiasm for the city and fascination with American culture of the time is tangible. Ogawa’s shift away from the established documentary style of post-war Japanese photographers is readily apparent, and personal expression, emotion and empathy all find their way into his work. From Vietnam War protests and hippies to black culture in Harlem and Pop Art, the period is elegantly captured in Ogawa’s work. Includes critical texts by Nathan Lyons and Anne Wilkes Tucker, plus a DVD with film footage shot by Ogawa.
