Tokyo / Yasu Kojima

Tokyo / Yasu Kojima


Yasu Kojima / Sokyu-sha / hardcover, 2016

Calm compositions of contemporary Tokyo, in glaring colors - there is something of a opposition in Kojima's work: there is the bristling energy of the city in the plain light of the day, exposed to scrutiny, and yet the work testifies to a playful energy, sometimes giving the city a look as if it had been constructed by willful infants. What is at it's heart a documentary approach about a particular city and a particular time, with a little love and a little doubt thrown in for good measure, becomes, through the power of the images and the concentrated editing a hymn on candor and the sculptural beauty of photography itself.
