Looking & Finding, The Photographs

These photographs were taken during two trips to Japan made in January and May 2019.I was interested in recording sites that in some way resonated beyond themselves, that pointed towards what philosopher Roland Barthes saw in Japan as a “special organization of space”. For the most part the sites I chose to photograph are possessed by a peculiarly modern visual sensibility, an aesthetic borne as much of happenstance as of design. These are spaces that clicked for me and that spoke to each other. They are spaces that are on the edge of the scene, of time and of usefulness.
