Naoya Hatakeyama, born 1958 in Iwate, Japan, is known for his contemporary portraits. He is most famous for photographing cities and how its urban development intertwines with the raw beauty of nature.
His penchant for the environment can be seen in his seven publications, namely Underground (2000), Lime Works (2002), Naoya Hatakeyama (2002), Atmos (2004), Zeche Westfalen I/II Ahlen (2006) and Scales (2008).
Apart from Japan’s landscapes, Hatekayama also focused his camera on global destinations such as En Camarque, Fos-sure Mer. In 2003, he shot the area and gave the critics two perspectives: that of what happens inside the industrial mill, and that of what transpires outside the town’s borders. The collection represented the calmness of the outskirts and the modernizations inside the mill.
Lime Works, a portrait collection of limestone quarries, helped him win the Ihei Kimura Photography Award. Underground, a series of images of Japan’s sewerage, gave him the Manichi Art Award. In 2001, he became the Japanese representative for the 49th Venice Biennale.
His images can be found at several galleries around the globe, such as the Yale University Art Gallery in Connecticut, the Museum of Fine Arts in Texas, Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Kunsthaus in Zurich, and Maison Europienne de la Photographie in Paris.
