Publisher's Description

The first book of essays by the major critic Mariko Takeuchi. The text of Silence and Image discusses the works of 11 Japanese photographers including Ken Domon, Risaku Suzuki, and Lieko Shiga. All of the essays have been translated into English, and the beautiful illustrations serve as portals to the text. What does it mean to look at photographs? What does it mean to draw near to people in pain? These questions underlie all of the essays. The book also considers gender as it relates to art and photography.

Mariko Takeuchi was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1972, and is currently based in Kyoto. After receiving an M.A. in Arts from Waseda University, she was a visiting researcher at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo. She is currently associate professor of Kyoto University of Art and Design. She has contributed to many photography books, newspapers and magazines as a photography critic, and curated many photography exhibitions. Published works include her Japanese translation of Jonathan Torgovnik's Intended Consequences: Rwandan Children Born of Rape (Akaaka Art Publishing, 2010).
