Portraits of African musicians

Tsunehiro Takukuwa Photo Exhibition

 

Tsunehiro Takukawa first set foot in Africa in 1991. Since then, he says, “I have taken numerous portraits of some tremendous African musicians using a large 4x5-inch camera. I believe that this format helps capture the soul of the subject.”

Song, dance and rhythm are an indispensable part of the daily lives of Africans, and Takukawa says his photos are unsolicited love letters to the people he’s encountered on his travels. “Their engaging faces,” he says, “seem to represent something of humanity that the Japanese are in danger of losing. ❶
