Any series – are, in one way or another, the reflection of the author’s personal experience. For the past couple of months I very rarely left the house, when I did it was only at night when I went to work or in case of an urgent matter. I did not answer the phone and rarely checked my e-mails. Most of the time was spent attempting to answer the questions which had accumulated over the past years.

Everything surrounding us today is progressively becoming faster; gaining momentum with each day the superfluous amount of information is becoming more unbearable to withhold; it forces a man to retreat inside, to close off, to seek confinement within himself as a kind of temporary relief — a Psychological Isolation, if you may.

In creating these series I first and foremost aspired to capture and to convey the moment of internal displacement, its separation in two spheres — the objective and the subjective. Submerged in isolation, be it only a temporary or even a deliberate one, the human mind begins to operate in a seesaw-like motion; the consciousness shifts from objective reality to internal images: associations and memories. As if rummaging through an old archive, the mind drifts from the present moment to projections of the found memories and the feelings associated with them and then back again and so forth.

Japanese photographer ‘Naoya Hatakeyama’ has been working for a number of years in limestone quarries capturing a series of explosions. Taken with a remote controlled camera set up meters from the explosions, these high speed images explore the total arrest of dynamic movement.

The “Blast” series was worked on in 1995 and completed in 1999. It had been preceded by “Underground (tunnel series)” and “Underground (details series)”, both collections unearthed the secret layout beneath Tokyo streets. Although reflecting distinctive experiences, they all refer to a unique experience, with the unique character of the configuration and the movement being captured with the lens. The material conditions of the explosion are separation, division, and detachment. Unity is preceded by multiplicity.

Because he is unable to control or foresee the composition of the final picture, Hatakeyama’s photographs are powerful metaphors of modernity, technological images in which destruction and construction occur in the same instant. Here, the act of creation occurs in a simultaneous time and space as the explosion. [Extract : Valerie Portefaix : Published in Tofu#3]
