Yutaka Takanashi was born in Tokyo in 1935. Since beginning his career as a photographer at the end of the 1950s, Takanashi has, on the one hand, worked on the front lines of commercial photography, while also consistently turning his gaze towards his central theme of 'cities', exhibiting a wide range of series about this subject. In 1964, he won the 8th Japan Photo Critics Association Newcomer’s Award, and in 1967 he won the 5th Paris Young Artists Biennial Grand Prize in Photography. In 1968, together with Takuma Nakahira, Koji Taki and Takahiko Okada, he began publishing the photography magazine PROVOKE, which stopped its activities in 1970. In 1984 and 1993 he won The Photographic Society of Japan Annual Award, and in 1991 he won the 3rd Society of Photography Award. In 1993, together with Genpei Akasegawa and Yutokutaishi Akiyama, he formed the 'Leica Alliance'. His representative works include Toshi-e (Towards the City) (1974), Town (1977), Tokyoites 1978-1983 (1983), Hatsukuni (Pre-Landscape) (1993), Chimeiron (Genius Loci, Tokyo) (2000), NOSTALGHIA (2004) and Kakoimachi (Walled City) (2007). In 2009, he held the exhibit Field Notes of Light, at The National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo. In 2012, his photography book IN won the 31st Ken Domon Award.
