Hashiguchi began to document the plight of Tokyo youth in 1980 in his award winning project Shishen (The Look). He then traveled through five Western cities: Liverpool, London, Nuremberg, West Berlin, and New York in a quest to further chronicle communities of disenfranchised youths abroad. Since its initial publication in 1982 ‘We Have No Place to Be’ has influenced generations of artists and photographers in Japan. This new edition of Hashiguchi’s seminal early work includes more than 30 previously unpublished mages and an essay by Yoshitomo Nara reflecting upon the project as well as his own time spent as a youth in Europe during the ‘80s.
A ’must have’ for any raw and pure emotionnal art lover.
