About Book 



「この『SMOKEY MOUNTAIN』は名越啓介という1人の若い写真家がマニラのスモーキーマウンテンに一目惚れし、10年かかって口説き落とした、とても私的なスモーキーマウンテンへのラブストーリーでもあると同時に、深い闇のベールに覆われたフィリピン社会の光と影を収めた貴重なルポルタージュでもある。」

Keisuke Nagoshi's "SMOKEY MOUNTAIN" is the result of 10 years of photographing the life around an enormous garbage dump in Manila which is inhabited by thousands of people. Over his many trips to Smokey Mountain, Nagoshi became close to the people living there, and this human connection comes through strongly in his work. He's able to document the reality of this place without simply trying to shock the viewer. At times, Nagoshi's photographs approach an almost classical black and white snapshot aesthetic, while at other times he uses a simpler style to show an event, or someone's face. Life in Smokey Mountain is harsh, but Nagoshi is able to offer a carefully considered perspective on the way that people live and die in these conditions.

Includes English translations of texts by editor Fumihiro Hayashi and the photographer.

Born in 1977 in Nara, JAPAN.
When he was nineteen years old, he went to the United States on his own. Traveling many places,from L.A., Seattle,San Francisco, Canada, and to Mexico, he lived together with squatters from the North American continent and portrayed their way of life on his film. After that,this peculiar trip became his lifework. In 2004,he visited the Philippines for the first time and was attracted to Scavenger's yet boundless cheerfulness. Thereafter, he began to take photographs of "heresy" from Asia. In the spirit of his trips with American squatters, he visited four Asian countries.
