Introducing an artist #18: Daisuke Yokota

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 18, 2014, 8:47 AM
I recently saw his work in Photography Museum Amsterdam (Foam), and it took my breath away. Such a refreshing style and working method (as can be read below). I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

From the website of Foam:

'Yokota has created a small image-making factory in his apartment, which he uses to create his haunting, distorted black-and-white images. Using a compact digital camera to create prints that can be considered as his raw material, Yokota endlessly rephotographed each image with a 6x7 film camera. The developing process and the potential of analogue image-making are pushed to the extreme to create imperfections and visual noise. Experimenting and trying to avoid doing anything the same way twice is essential to Daisuke Yokota's method. To produce a large number of variations in the final image, he sometimes re-photographed it ten or more times. By doing so he not only tries to incorporate a sensation of time into his images but to increase the distance between the original and the final image, stressing photography's inability to represent events from the past truthfully and factually. Recollections, memories and dreams are never far away in Yokota's haunting work.'

'Introducing an artist' is a journal series in which I feature my favourite visual artists, not necessarily active on deviantART: photographers, painters, digital artists, and so on. Some are established and well-known, some are upcoming or underground.
