Resist: Agonizing Answers 悶答

Yoshinaga Masayuki and Moriyama Daido launched the Resist Photography School in 2006 to pass their experiences on to a new generation, and to encourage new talent and individualism while participating in direct exchange through the production of photographic works.

The goal is not to study photography techniques, per se, but rather to think about what to take, why to show photography to others, and why to use photography as a medium for expression. One must face oneself, and if that remains elusive, then knowing what to point the lens at will be impossible.

Before taking a picture, a photographer must ask: who am I? While facing up to things once disliked or avoided, and consequently agonizing over those things, the photographer must then give the fullest, most personal answer possible. Repeating this self-questioning and answering, self confidence grows. The will to continue taking photographs is thus integral to this title, Agonizing Answers.

These answers of the present moment, which each individual discovered inside despite the agony, are now revealed.
