From the artist's web site: "Commissioned as one of five contemporary world artists selected for the Cultural Olympiad Artist book project for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic games ... Ohtake`s richly-imaged _ATlanta 1945 + 50_ is a document that travels from the visual rhythm and density of a Tokyo street to a direct and intense scrutiny of Atlanta`s cultural encrustation. Endless Japanese and American ephemera are juxtaposed, overlapped and manipulated to create complex crosscultural visions - the printing of this artist`s book involved as a many as 150 runs on the press.
