Shomei Tomatsu (1930 – 2012) was perhaps the most influential Japanese photographer of the post-war era.  

His raw, grainy and impressionistic style signalled a dramatic break with the quiet formalism that had defined earlier photography.  Influencing the anti-establishment Provoke photography movement in Japan in the late 1960s, he is hailed as the stylistic mentor of artists such as Daido Moriyama, Nobuyoshi Araki and Takuma Nakihara.


------

Shomei Tomatsu (1930 – 2012) était peut-être le photographe japonais le plus influent de l’après-guerre.

Son style marque une rupture dramatique avec le formalisme qui avait défini la photographie antérieure. En 1959, il crée, avec Kiruji Kawada, Akira Sato, kira Tanno, Ikko Narahara et Eikoh Hosoe, l’agence photo Vivo qui aura un grand rayonnant dans la photographie japonaise malgré sa dissolution deux ans plus tard. Influençant le mouvement photographique Provoke au Japon à la fin des années 1960, il est salué comme le mentor stylistique d’artistes tels que Daido Moriyama, Nobuyoshi Araki et Takuma Nakihara.
