We like to think of Vincent van Gogh as the archetypal tortured artist. While perhaps he fits the bill, there\'s more to the story, and this episode of Power of Art (above) takes pains to fill out the Dutch painter\'s character.

Night Crawler by Takehiko Nakafuji - British Journal of Photography

Night Crawler by Takehiko Nakafuji - British Journal of Photography | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

The Japanese photographer perhaps best known for shooting at night and on the street is Daido Moriyama, so it’s appropriate that Takehiko Nakafuji studied under him. Nakafuji recently published a two-volume book of photographs of nocturnal Tokyo called Night Crawler, the first volume containing images taken in 1995 and the second images taken in 2010. The combination shows changes in both the city and the man, evoking by turns the restless excitement and raffish charm of Tokyo’s underbelly, and a lonely, sombre place.
