The 64th GRist is actor Eita Nagayama!

Eita has used many of GR series in his career, and in the TTA x Eita Nagayama x GR collaboration project that began in March, he is sharing his own columns along with his GR photos.

This GRist issue is linked to the special content. To learn more about Eita's thoughts on photography, cameras and the GR, check out the special content.


I feel happy when I meet someone who takes their GR out quickly.
However, it is difficult to talk much about the GR.

When I want the world to see my pictures taken with my GR, my playful side comes out because many people have the GR. I take a lot of pictures.

Being away from the universality of photography, the good and the bad, living with the GR, which allows me to sensually press the shutter, brings a sense of liveliness to my daily life as memories and records come together.

This is the joy of photography that I may have inherited from my mother. I wonder if the photos I take with my GR are no longer mine.

What is photography? The feeling of photography changes every day. Because I am alive. Sometimes I get confused.

A camera I never wanted to part with.
A camera that is the same as others, but different from others.

I'm enjoying my life with my beloved GR to the fullest, now.
