Photographs by Ken Ohara. Essay by Sally Stein.
Steidl / Folkwang Museum, Gottingen / Essen, 2006. 88 pp., 53 tritone illustrations, 9½x10½".



Publisher's Description
The photographer Ken Ohara moved from Tokyo to New York in 1962, and came to public attention in 1970 with the publication of One, which contained more than 500 tight close-ups of faces. In the 30 years since then, Ohara has continued his portrait studies in greatly varied forms. This extensive collection presents seven projects in their entirety for the first time, pieces made between 1970 and 2003, some of which were first exhibited at MoMA, and others that have rarely been seen. They range from radical close-ups of hundreds of anonymous faces to a self-portrait made up of photos shot every minute for a period of 24 hours to journals—Ohara once documented a year in 365 images on an accordion fold. Also included are portraits in which the exposure period for each face exceeded an hour. Ken Ohara’s work offers an intense examination of space and time in portraiture and provokes a re-thinking of the limits of photographic depiction.
