The Streets of Shanghai Through the Eyes of Hiroyuki Nakada
"I point the camera at my subjects without warning," writes Japanese photographer Hiroyuki Nakada. "My subjects are neither models nor actors, just ordinary citizens. I can’t help but feel excited seeing the horror somewhere in the depths of expressions on people’s faces in everyday life. Seeing them fulfills me. That is why I still devour them even today, like a hyena that has found its prey.” Nakada's relocation to Shanghai from Japan in 1999 coincided with the purchase of a small Ricoh GR digital camera. The resulting pictures, compiled in a new book, Shanghai, reveal the curiosity of an outsider and the knowledge of an insider.
