Osamu James Nakagawa

© Osamu James Nakagawa The Japanese-American photographer Osamu James Nakagawa has just been awarded a Guggenheim fellowship to support his work on the Banta and Gama series. With Banta, Nakagawa explores the scars of the Pacific War opposing Japan to America on the cliffs of the island of Okinawa. I was intrigued by the format (which doesn't translate well on a screen) and the fact that these seemingly classic landscape photographs have been "digitally-manipulated" (I would be interested to know how).
