HOME Portraits of the Hakka by OSAMU NAKAMURA *signed

In the mountainous region of Fujian Province, China, there is a people known as the Hakka. These people, who once fled warfare from the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River, have a history of over 1,700 years, and their collective housing, shaped like a stadium, is unparalleled. The photographer Osamu Nakamura, who studied under the master photographer Eiichiro Sakata, began his photography even before the site was registered as a World Heritage site.
In this collection of photographs titled "HOME," his camera captures the portraits of the old people who live here and the traditional Chinese landscape, which is dying out, with orange light. The wrinkles on the old people's faces, traces of the lives they have surely led there. And something that must be handed down with their prayers. In their eyes, there is a true "HOME" for the viewer. Winner of the 20th Sagamihara Photography Newcomer's Incentive Award. Signed.


中村治 写真集 *署名本

中国福建省山間部に、「客家(はっか)」と呼ばれる人たちがいる。かつて黄河中下流域から戦乱を逃れてきた民である彼らの、1700年以上もの歴史を持つスタジアムのような形状の集団住宅は他に例を見ない。巨匠・坂田栄一郎に師事していた写真家、中村治はここが世界遺産に登録される以前から取材を始めていたという。
「HOME」と題されたこの写真集は、ここに住処を構える老人たちのポートレートと、廃れていく中国伝統の風景がオレンジ色の光と共にカメラに収められている。老人たちの顔のしわ、確かにそこに暮らしてきた生活の痕跡。そして祈りとともに受け継がなければならないもの。彼らの眼差しの中に、見る者の真の「HOME」がある。第20回さがみはら写真新人奨励賞受賞作。サインあり。
