tokyo: form-philia

© takashi suzuki - bau series 2010-2014

japanese photographer takashi suzuki [1971] has a distinct eye for peculiar aesthetics. hailing from kyoto, suzuki pursued an education abroad, graduating from the art institute of boston first and later on attending a student program at kunstakademie düsseldorf. now living and working in his hometown, his approach to photogrphy puts him in a category all his own. he is interested in how the photographic subject is perceived, rather than understanding what the photographic subject actually is. suzuki aims to create photographic works that makes the  you feel as though you're seeing something totally different from the person next you, and his new solo exhibition at tokyo's ima concept store – a leading photography gallery, store and café rolled into one – perfectly demonstrates that. entitled form-philia, it presents an exemplary body of his work, including the bau and arca series, in addition to new productions [on through jul 12]. location: axis building, 5-17-1 roppongi, third floor [roppongi].
