Takashi Aria has been using the classical photographic process of daguerrotypes since 2010 to record nuclear issues, which he finds far better for recording and transmitting interactions with his subjects than modern photography and which is evocative of the earliest photographs of Japan. Arai’s work has appeared in numerous exhibitions, at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Mori Art Museum, the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, among other international venues.
