This event has ended.

Okude won the Grand Prize at the 30th Hitotsubo photography open call exhibition held from February to March last year. This solo exhibition is the culmination of a year's work since winning that prize.

Okude's photographic subject is his younger sister, with whom he grew up together. Owing to some incident that led to a palpable sense of distance intervening between them, Okude trained his camera on her in an effort to bury the hatchet. Through photographing her, he came to understand the complex set of emotions he felt for her and the significance of her presence in his life. In addition to color works that capture straightforward and direct pictures of his sister, similar to those submitted to the Hitotsubo exhibition last year, this solo show also features re-scanned black and white versions of past prints. Taken together, this exhibition showcases the "real her" in the present continuous tense captured in color, and a whimsical past "her" in black and white. Okude's show is a new experiment in giving expression to deeply embedded memories by tracing its past fragments.
