ー 写真と言葉をめぐるフィールドワーク&ワークショップ ー今年生誕90年を迎え再注目される小説家・後藤明生は、晩年、近畿大学で教鞭をとり、大阪で暮らしました。中世から伝わる「俊徳丸伝説」をはじめ上町台地ゆかりの歴史や文学への探究を綴った小説『しんとく問答』（講談社1995年刊行）には後藤本人と思われる主人公が上町台地で撮影した写真の記述が多く登場しますが、写真自体は一枚も掲載されていません。本ワークショップでは、これらの“写真のない写真解説”をもとに、「俊徳丸伝説」の舞台である、四天王寺―俊徳道駅間を十三ヶ所に分けて撮影します。はたして、後藤が歩いた平成初期の俊徳街道は、令和の今どのように見えるのか？土地に見え隠れする歴史の出来事や変遷を感じながら、カメラを片手にまち歩きしませんか？
In July 2022, My book, “Appearance” received a prize called the Shashin-no-Kai (the Society of Photography) Award in Japan.
Juries consist of the country’s top-notch art/photography professionals, including critics, curators, editors, and book designers but photographers. I am incredibly honored to be selected for such a special and prestigious award. Thank you all who supported me in making this happen.
