Takashi Hamaguchi Biography

Takashi Hamaguchi was born in 1931 in Shizuoka Prefecture. He began working seriously as a photographer after registering with the Nihon Hodo-Shashin Renmei photojournalist association in 1956. He debuted as a photojournalist with his image of the decisive moment of a student throwing a rock at Crown Prince Akihito’s wedding carriage in 1959, which was published widely in magazines. He went on to shoot socio-political issues regarding the US military bases, Niigata earthquake, student struggles, and protests against the construction of Narita Airport.
