MATSUOKA!

MATSUOKA!

Asami MINAMI

Publisher: Pipe Publishing

“Matsuoka!”, the first photobook by Asami Minami, winner of the 2014 Canon New Cosmos of Photography Grand Prix Award.

“Matsuoka!” features countless scenes of a woman (the titular Matsuoka, a friend of Minami’s) running through Japan — from urban scenes like the famous Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo to fields, forests, deserts and parks. With a pinch of humor, Minami presents her model as the energetic protagonist of heroic scenes, sprinting away to (possibly) ward off danger or save someone from peril.

“What is she doing? I am taking pictures of heroes but who is she fighting against?
I kept taking pictures without knowing those answers.
I kept running and running so that the answers couldn’t catch me.” (from Asami Minami’s afterword)
