Takuma Nakahira: Aratanaru Gyoushi (A New Gaze)

In 1977, as a result of acute alcohol poisoning, Nakahira suffered severe amnesia and lost much of his ability to communicate through spoken and written language. A New Gaze presents images and diary entries Nakahira made as he recovered and literally began to rediscover language — both photographic and verbal. From the artist: “My photography is an absolute necessity for me, having forgotten everything.”
