The Dreaming – Yasuhiro OGAWA


The Dreaming – Yasuhiro OGAWA

Ogawa‘s new book The Dreaming contains 86 black and white images
selected from his 27 years’ career in photography and traveling.
When he turned 50 last year, he decided to go through
all the black & white negatives he had taken so far.
Every moment of the journeys may have been visions of dreams –
that’s what he thought when he tracked down his archive and
such a thought gave him a hint to make this book.

Il y a 27 ans, Yasuhiro Ogawa a pris le ferry de Kobe à Shanghai et a fait un long voyage en Asie, l’amenant en Chine, au Myanmar, en Inde, au Cambodge, au Tibet et dans d’autres pays. Les photographies dans « The Dreaming », développées et tirées plusieurs années après le retour d’Ogawa, présentent ses voyages comme des impressions d’un rêve. Le beau noir et blanc de ses images crée le monde tel que vu des yeux d’un jeune aventurier submergé par ce qu’il voit, qui s’est livré aux expériences et aux vues qu’il allait rencontrer. Les photographies d’Ogawa réussissent dans une tâche difficile : capturer le monde aussi à l’étranger et fascinant qu’il peut l’être.

27 years ago, he notes in his afterword, Yasuhiro Ogawa took the ferry from Kobe to Shanghai and emerged on a long journey through Asia, taking him to China, Myanmar, India, Cambodia, Tibet and other countries. The photographs in “The Dreaming”, developed and edited many years after Ogawa’s return, present his travels as if they were impressions from a dream. The beautiful black and white of his images creates the world as seen from the eyes of a young adventurer overwhelmed by what he sees, who surrendered himself to the experiences and sights he was going to be met with. Ogawa’s photographs succeed in a difficult task: capturing the world as otherworldly and fascinating as it can truly be.
