Yu Kawasaki “Scenes”
This event has ended.
Yu Kawasaki won the Grand Prize at the 17th “1Wall” Photography Competition for “Scenes,” photographs in which he captured the chaos and tranquility found in the everyday lives of his family members. The judges expressed high acclaim for the appealing character of each family member and for the sense of gloom and entrapment found in the images.
Kawasaki’s solo exhibition will feature photographs he shot in his hometown of Nagahama, Shiga Prefecture showing his parents, elder sister, and scenes from the surrounding area undergoing depopulation. His father standing in a cluttered room; his mother doing exercises in the family living room; his sister walking gingerly in the rice paddies. Kawasaki’s photos contain the instants when the serious and sometimes vacant expressions of his family members seen in their everyday lives somehow seem amusing. Ordinary scenes, yet out of the ordinary, captured as if by chance.
On July 13 (Fri), a talk event will be held with photographer Risaku Suzuki as guest. The theme will be the narrative nature of Kawasaki’s photos.
