Yoichi Sano Exhibition / 佐野陽一「眩耀」

30 March – 24 April, 2017

The “radiance” we can only experience to a limited degree through our eyes is projected onto the inside of the camera as various expressions of light. The photographs that record these expressions cause us to feel and to think again about what it means to see, and about the scenes before our eyes.
This exhibition presents photographs that are almost backlit, taken in the early morning in Kamikochi, a place Yoichi Sano has visited often since his student days. Sano says he lets his impulses take control when framing the pictures, and that he feels nature is trying to show its natural form, just as it is. These works were created with the pinhole technique, on the theme of “photographs that provide clues as to how to perceive the world.” We hope you enjoy the exhibition. (Photos by Gallery Taga2 & Yoichi Sano)

本展では、佐野陽一が学生時代から頻繁に訪れている上高地で、朝方の時間帯に逆光に近い状態で撮影したイメージを中心に展示いたします。光に導かれるよう気の向くままフレーミングしているようで、実は自然があるがままの姿を示そうとしているようにも感じられると佐野は話します。「世界を知覚する手がかりとしての写真」をテーマにしたピンホールの手法による作品をどうぞご高覧ください。(Photos by Gallery Taga2 & Yoichi Sano)
