El fotógrafo japonés Kitai Kazuo, nacido en 1944, hizo un viaje a Barcelona en el año 1977, durante el cual hizo una serie fotográfica sobre la noche barcelonesa.
Ahora ha publicado un libro “Spanish Night”, una auténtica lección sobre cómo captar la vida de la calle de una ciudad. papelcontinuo
In the fall of 1977, Kitai took a trip to Spain, shot some rolls of color, and never did anything with the film. Now, 30 years later, he’s made these photos into a book published by Tosei-sha called “Spanish Night.” There’s been no effort to undo the effect of time on the negatives, and I really like how the colors turned out. It’s fun to guess what the people here were thinking. I’d imagine something along of the lines of, “what the hell is this Japanese guy doing here taking pictures of us?” I don’t sense any hesitation on Kitai’s part, though, more like the thrill of exploring a new place. This is a short book but it really hits the mark. Street Level Japan
