今作品は野口里佳の超初期作品である「城を」「座標感覚」「創造の記録」の3部作に未発表作品の2点(無題)を加えて編集したものです。
これまでの野口の世界での活躍は誰も知るところですが、学生時代のこれらの写真を見ると、その作品を構成する感性の鋭さが既にその時に完成していたことがわかります。

天性ともいえる独特の構図の作り方、そしてプリントの美しさ、roshin booksではそれらの魅力を余すことなく写真集に詰め込みました。写真集の歴史における重要なマスターピースとなる1冊です。

roshin Books announces the publication of Rika Noguchi’s photobook “Record of Creation”. It is the ninth publication in roshin Books’ growing catalogue.
Rika Noguchi has been a distinguished photographer even in her student days, and after numerous publications and exhibitions has grown to become an artist representative of contemporary Japanese photography.

Noguchi’s technique of capturing the world with her distinctive, sharp perspective - often compared to “the eyes of a stranger” - leads her to turn everyday sights into views from a different world.
The moment fixated in a photograph, the light that flowed into its creation, even gravity’s effect on the depicted world: everything is present in Noguchi’s carefully arranged compositions.

roshin’s photobook “Record of Creation” collects Rika Noguchi’s first three publications, “Rescue”, “An Axis”, and “Record of Creation”, all of which were created during her student days. Even during this early period, her photography clearly demonstrated her rare talent as an artist. She then went on to win one photography award after another and gain international recognition.

For the series “Rescue”, Noguchi photographed rescue training manoeuvres held by firefighters. Themes of rescue and saving are revisited in Noguchi’s contemporary output, drawing a direct connection between this earliest of her published works and her recent series. In the series “An Axis”, Noguchi’s creative vision transform the world into a coordinate system into which people’s existence is arranged. The effect of these images is a sense of an eternal time that cannot be reconstructed again. For the series “Record of Creation”, Noguchi chose a construction site as the stage. Workers are present in each of the 6x6 photographs; the series appears as a collaborative effort between Noguchi and the workers on the construction site. Lastly, the book concludes with two previously unpublished photographs.

roshin Books collected these early works in a beautiful book, created with 1
great care and attention to binding and printing. “Record of Creation” is a masterpiece that will prove indispensable for future discussions about both ; Noguchi and Japanese photobook culture.
