This event has ended.
Photographer Tadataka Wakayama’s new series “Parting/Gathering” documents the areas surrounding Narita Airport that seem “suspended in the air,” removed from both humanity and nature. A product of the suburbs, Wakayama grapples with the notion of “Japan” as equivalent to an attachment to a hometown. He likens seeing planes arrive and take off repeatedly to “images of the past retreating like myths.” He spent five years attempting to photograph these places of gathering and parting “caught between history and reality.”
