Japanese photographer Akiko Takizawa embarks on an intensive touring schedule following her Prix HSBC pour la Photographie win
Her work uses a classic Collotype printing technique and follows in the tradition of Japanese photography masters such as Eikoh Hosoe, Shoji Ueda, and Yasui Nakaji, writes Tate’s curator of photography and international art, Simon Baker. He is talking about Japanese photographer Akiko Takizawa, who in February received the 2014 Prix HSBC pour la Photographie with Swiss photographer Delphine Burtin.
Since winning the prize, which was created in 1995 to “support and promote an emerging generation of photographers”, Takizawa has embarked on an intensive tour of her work. She will also be producing a photo book, Where We Belong, with French publisher Actes Sud, to be launched at Les Rencontres d’Arles this summer.
