by Takashi Yasamura
I like photography that creates art out of ordinary life by blending objects, color, shapes and light with simplicity. The work (see here, here and here) of Takashi Yasamura is a great example of that.
Born in Shiga, Japan in 1972, Yasumura explored the home of his parents for seven years, creating his quirky still life images with objects, traditional and modern, he found around the dwelling. The images, produced with a 4×5 camera, have struck a chord with the photography community – appearing in a solo show at Yossi Milo in New York City, a recent issue of The New Yorker and Aperture magazine, a book, Domestic Scandals, published in Tokyo in 2005, and various exhibitions around the world.- from PDN online
