Provoke was first published in November 1968 as a dojin-shi, or self-published magazine. It was originally conceived by art critic Koji Taki (1928-2011) and photographer Takuma Nakahira (1938-2015), with poet Takahiko Okada (1939-1997) and photographer Yutaka Takanashi as dojin members. The subtitle for the magazine was “Provocative Materials for Thought”, and each issue was composed of photographs, essays and poems. After releasing the second and third issue with Daido Moriyama as a subsequent member, the group broke up with their last publication First, Abandon the World of Pseudo-Certainty – an overview edition of the three issues. Provoke’s grainy, blurry, and out-of-focus photographs were initially ridiculed as are-bure-boke and stirred a great deal of controversy, yet it had created a strong impact inside and outside of the photography world during that time. However, today, Provoke has become an extremely rare book and very few people have seen the original.

Ré-édition en fac-similé des 3 volumes du magazine Provoke publiés initialement en novembre 1968, mars 1969 et août 1969, considéré comme la pierre angulaire de la nouvelle photographie japonaise des années 70 et au-delà.

Ce magazine avait été créé par les critiques et photographes Kōji Taki et Takuma Nakahira, le photographe Yutaka Takanashi, et l’écrivain Takahiko Okada. Le photographe Daidō Moriyama se joindra à l’équipe à partir du deuxième numéro.

Les trois volumes sont accompagnés d’un quatrième livret qui reprend les textes des trois numéros, traduits en anglais et en chinois. L’ensemble est présenté dans un sac plastique floqué “Provoke”.
