スーパーラボから刊行された、北島敬三写真集『CAMP 1979』。
新宿2丁目にあったインディペンデント・ギャラリー、CAMP(1976年にオープン)で北島が開催した展覧会「写真特急便 東京」。ときには会場自体を暗室にして制作していた北島は、その会場風景や制作風景を撮影しています。『CAMP 1979』は、北島の作品と制作・発表行為、さらにはCAMPという場所が、決して切り離せないものとして考えられていたことを感じさせる写真集です。

IMAGE SHOP CAMP, an independent gallery, was opened in 1976, at multi-tenant building located at 2 chome street in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district. 6 graduates of “WORK SHOP Daido Moriyama class” includes me were participated.
This is where, I showed my photos of Tokyo from January to December 1979, in a radically new way.
The series, PHOTO EXPRESS: TOKYO(Shashin Tokkyubin: Tokyo), was accompanied by a monthly, 16-page booklet, with issues numbered 1 to12. The shooting location was the center of 2 chome street in Shinjuku around CAMP.
I presented grids of images or enlarged prints, impromptu, immediately after the photo session, almost in real time.
Occasionally I transform the gallery into a darkroom, projecting the images directly onto bromide paper attached to the wall, then applying developer and fixer with a sponge.
The interval between the various phases of shooting, developing, exhibition, publication, and dis-semination was thus reduced to a minimum. far from wishing to embody an intension that would be prior to the act of taking the photograph, I sought to produce images in a mechanical way, beyond my control: The accidental became a means of experiencing the world.
