■ITALY 1985-1990

56 photos, most shared for the first time on this occasion. Great simply to look at and enjoy, these images also pose interesting questions for every viewer. What does a gifted Japanese photographer see in the faces of the people he meets in Italy? How is the presence of a Japanese photographer reflected in their expressions? Why does he choose these moments, these people? What do these photos tell us about the Japanese way of seeing Italy, and what Western traditions of photography are evident in the artist's approach? Look below the surface, and you'll find yourself checking the collection again and again.

Also available at the App Store: FLANDRE 1996-1997 (29 photos; paid app).

■Naomi Kawakami

Ballet dancers, actors, manga artists, even former prime minister Junichiro Koizumi. Kawakami has produced portraits of them all more than 300 celebrities altogether. Once when photographing a renowned Japanese psychiatrist he was told: "You take photos the way a psychoanalyst counsels."

■Message from the photographer

I always loved Italian cinema: Bertolucci, Fellini, Visconti, Ettore Scola.... And I promised myself that one day I'd actually go and see those scenes from the silver screen. The first time I went to Rome I was just another foreigner caught in a tourist trap, but the sounds of Italian were captivating. As soon as I got back to Japan I started taking Italian lessons, then I travelled to Italy again and again. I'd rent a car and head off to Tuscany, and that's where I started getting into taking photos in Italy. The people I met were fascinating, each one a strikingly different character in an intriguing drama. We'd chat, we'd eat, and gradually I'd feel myself blending into Italian life. Unrepeatable moments. This is the story of that journey. To one and all: Grazie!
