A gallery talk by TAKASHI will be held as follows:
There is this photographer who took his first serious photo of Mt. Fuji in 2011 and ever since has photographed nothing but. Thatʼs 7 years of just Mt. Fuji! His name is Takashi and until now has been known mostly overseas.
Mt. Fuji has enthralled an endless flow of Japanese photographers. Literally thousands upon thousands have sacrificed hours and hours of their time waiting for that special day and moment when this revered symbol of Japan appears in untold beauty, with aspirations of emulating and one day surpassing the achievements of those before them.
Takashi has combed through photo sites around the world. Having honed his perception in the process, his pursuit of Mt. Fuji began from a unique perspective all his own.
Its majestic silhouette floating on a sea of clouds as if separating heaven and earth
A cloud shaped like an alien mothership from space
The moment the warm light of dawn shines on a snowy landscape at -10˚C
The full moon appearing above the peak tinged red by the setting sun
Transparent vivid colors, subtle contrasts in monochrome, deep serene blue ink series. His expression unbridled, Takashi still seeks a new Mt. Fuji uninfluenced by all of the conventional representations, pure and simple.
Takashiʼs first solo exhibition is coming in spring 2019. See for yourself this next first step in his continuing evolution.
