Softcover, edition of 100 copies, design by Hato, edited by Luigi Clavareau.

„Inner-North curated by Mr. Sadreddine AREZKI & 店長 (Mr. TENCHO) with the support of the Paris team, principally groups NAKAI’s works along 3 main axes: 1- Documentary/Folklore (fields and street photography), 2- a close-up of the fishing culture and life in TOHONKU, and 3- all hold together by series of “アレ・ブレ・ボケ “ are-bure-boke” grainy/rough, blurry, out-of-focus” photographs of the weather conditions prevailing in the core of Tohonku region.
Inner-North could be seen as a continuation of his last exhibition (北斗の街―遡上の光景 - Hokuto no machi “Sojou no Koukei - Sight on the run-up - town of the North Star) with Daido MORIYAMA @ Shuji Terayama Museum August-Sept 2016, an exhibition partially curated by MORIYAMA-san and SASAME-san “Poster Hari’s Gallery. Yet with Inner-North we attempt to show the inner core of his homeland’s folklore “Tohoku”; a selection of + 100 prints from about 500 photographs mainly from his hometown Hachinohe and the villages of Japan’s northern Tohonku region. Inner-North encompasses a body of works centered on the Haunted North Point Costal Life. Grainy/rough, blurry, out-of-focus photographs yet sharply penetrating - questioning the core of the folklore of his homeland TOHOKU …
Unquestionable it is that there is a rich influence in his printing process from his past associations in the 70’s and 80’s working and learning alongside of Eiko HOSOE, Shomei TOUMATSU, Masahisa FUKASE, Nobuyoshi ARAKI, his close friend Daido MORIYAMA, and a few others who influenced/lead the Provoke Current. Nevertheless, Inner-North attempts to show NAKAI’s works as a sharp documentary, a searching documentary of the core of the folklore of his homeland TOHOKU.“
