I will exhibit four large-format prints at Promo-Arte Gallery, Tokyo, 11/3 through 8. As I pursue photography as artwork, I often think about the differences between photography and other art media, such as paintings and lithography. The realistic expression of these non-photographic media seems to have common goal with photography even though subtle, textual differences exist due to the materials used. On the other hand, a large number of fine-art photographers are making their works highly abstract or going towards fantastic and romantic expression trying to depart from the documentary and reportage nature of photography. With the development of digital technology, capability of photographic fine-art expression has widened dramatically, and it is the right time for me to revisit and confirm how I should approach my creative work. To me the most important creative process at this moment is the process of converting the light signals captured by a camera to the brain signal that was felt by my sensibility. In particular, super-realism, which can be reached by the pursuit of realism to the ultimate, is one of the most interesting areas of photographic expression.
