Works & Comment

Read in English Text

I always consider myself egotistical. I either love or hate, and there is no middle ground. I only do things I want to do. This is my style.
Despite this fact, I came upon ptarmigans up in the mountains, and I immediately fell in love. This was a one-way love affair from a human being to ptarmigans, so it was unattainable from the very beginning. After ten years of twisting and turning, I became a photographer who specializes in photographing ptarmigans.
Just by looking at them, I learned a lot about their surroundings and present state, their neighboring plants and animals that rejoice in the joie de vivre. There were people who expressed their fondness of ptarmigans and spend considerable time with them. On the other hand, there were those who were indifferent and even hurt these birds that I deeply love. Those people never reflect on what they did. As someone who has received so many gifts from ptarmigans, I think I am obligated to return their favor to me. “Humans can transform themselves through their encounters and absorbing their newly-gained knowledge.” – these words represent my prayers and wishes. By pursuing my own passion and becoming a photographer, I found opportunities to impart my knowledge of ptarmigans widely to others. Now, I hope a lot more people will learn about ptarmigans. At the same time, I think, if my photographs of ptarmigans can help people “transform themselves,” it would be a great reward to me as a creator of art.

学芸員の解説

A Ptarmigan Sniper - Takahashi Kohei
Takahashi Kohei says that he can distinguish pure white ptarmigans among snow-covered mountains, and also discern the footsteps of ptarmigans from other animals simply by ear. He is a photographer, specializing in photographing ptarmigans, in other words, “a ptarmigan sniper.” In his childhood, Takahashi was good at sketching, so he entered an Art and Craft high school in Hokkaido. But after graduating from high school, he moved to Nagano Prefecture and started to work for a company which had no relationship with art. Then, being fascinated by the high mountains, he fell in love with the ptarmigans inhabiting there at first sight. He continues to pursue photography and chase ptarmigans, based from a mountain hut which he chose as his workplace. Since being awarded a special prize known as Gakujin (the name of the monthly mountain magazine) at the 4th Exhibition of the Tabuchi Yukio Memorial Award in honor of Tabuchi Yukio, a renowned mountain photographer, he continues to hold exhibitions in various venues. His works focus on the mysterious ecology of ptarmigans, which attract the attention of researchers as well.
