This event has ended.
Yoshitomo Nara has been consistently and intuitively shooting photographs since his teens, before he aspired to become an artist. This exhibition, his first with Taka Ishii Gallery, will feature approximately 200 photographs shot between 2014 and 2018. Shooting to simply note and document the value of easily overlooked scenes and lives, Nara has continuously produced photographs without any intent to exhibit them. For him, photography has been a way to record and sharpen his sensibility. The accumulation of those memories and records capture countless moments scattered across the seasons and are closely tied to the artist’s internal dialogues and reflections carried out while he produces artworks. We can trace the artist’s perspective and trajectories in the variety of climates, histories, landscapes, lives, peoples, and types of music captured as pure images in the photographs.
