Essay by Minoru Shimizu (English and Japanese)
This photo book was published to accompany the solo exhibition “Stay Gold” in 2014. 38 photographs made between 2006 and 2014 are included. Mostly straight snapshots, the images share a flatness and composition similar to abstract painting. With the book there’s an awareness of the progressive artist standing between the acts of fixing an image to photographic paper and operating monitor displays with images as digital data, continuously exploring the possibilities of photography. Accompanying text comes from art critic Minoru Shimizu.
