1964年20歳で北井の原点ともいえる『抵抗』を出版。「社会と写真の秩序への反抗を写真に定着させる」というコンセプトで、あえて教科書的な写真とは正反対の「ダメ写真」を狙い、被写体を手ぶれやピンボケ、粗粒子、すり傷だらけで撮影、処理し、1年以上高温多湿な場所に放置したフィルムを現像することで、乳剤面がはがれ張り付いたままのマチエールで全学連のデモを表現した。1965年から68年には、新左翼学生運動の全学連の運動を撮影。在学中であった日本大学芸術学部のバリケード内で、ストライキ学生たちと4ヶ月間寝食を共にし撮影。校舎内は学生らの衣食住の場と化し、非日常空間から日常空間へと変化する様子を記録した。その後もどんなテーマであれ、そこに内在する「日常」を内側からの目線で表現し、独自のキャリアを重ねてきた。戦後の激動に翻弄されながら、個としての存在価値を模索する現代人を共感させる身近で真実性をコンセプトにするドキュメンタリー作家である。

Kitai published a book titled "Resistance (Teiko)" when he was 20-year-old which book can be referred to as his original point. Under the concept of "Establishing Resistance against Order of Society and Photograph in Photograph" and with the aim of intentionally shooting "Useless Photographs" being exactly opposite of textbook photographs, he described the demonstrations held by Zengakuren with using an artistic effect of the emulsion side peeling off but still attached, by shooting and processing an object with camera shake, a defocused image, elementary particles and full of abrasions and by developing films which have been left at a hot and humid place for more than 1 year. From 1965 to 1968, he shot the photographs of Zengakuren campaigns in Shin-Sayoku student movements. Kitai shot them during the time when he spent 4 months with student strikers under the same roof and within the barricades set up at Nihon University College of Art to which he was attending. The campus became a place where they were fed, clothed and housed, and Kitai made a record of the process in which a non-daily living space was transformed into a daily living space. Later, Kitai continued to build his unique careers by illustrating the underlying "Daily Activities" in front of him from the inside regardless of theme. He is a documentary producer whose concept is to describe familiar, real things that attract the sympathy of modern people seeking their individual values while being greatly influence by stormy times after the war.
