Naoya Hatakeyama

Lime Works (Japanese and English Edition)
by Naoya Hatakeyama
Publisher's Description
Now in its third printing

The images in this book are of limestone quarries, lime works, and cement factories at some thirty locations scattered around Japan, ranging from Haikkido to Okinawa. The photographs of factories-sweeping panoramas often made at twilight or dawn-reveal an otherworldly mini-cityscape of oversized tubes and tunnels, all coated with a fine layer of white dust. This work was made between the years 1986 and 1994 and the first edition, published by Synergy of Tokyo in 1996, quickly went out-of-print. Amus Arts of Osaka has now reissued this Hatakeyama classic, complete with a new afterword by the artist.
