Osamu Takizawa was a camp member from the begining. He took part at Daido Moriyama's workshop with Seiji Kurata and Onaka Koji. Specialized in silkscreen at that time he made the cover of "Volume 1" during the Moriyama's classe!

He held solo exhibitions at Camp Gallery in 1976 "nikubae" (Flesh flies) featuring only silcreens and the same year "Neko to Osamu to hitori no onna"(Cat and me and a woman) and another one in 1977 . Also in Shimizu Gallery, and held a solo exhibition at Nikon Salon in February 1981

Gestation of a dream is the only self publication he made, it's about his fears and the fact he uses a dream as an escape.

My Familiars : A phantasmagoria of images engulfing, and being engulfed, enveloping, and being enveloped, swallowing up, and being swallowed- transforming that that causes, and causing within it. The woman, Kako appears, as the meta symbol, the fertile earth which gestate the dream, and, by it, is devoured, as creatures- newts, toads, skates, sea turtles, rats, and snails, surface and are engulfed in the ocean of dream, exposing marrow of ecstasy- the primal imperative to eat and to be eaten; I invite you to descend, with this book as your pillow, into the oceanic dream, and be regestated in cosmic metamorphosis"
