Bronze 2019 People / Self-Portrait
A photograph cuts out a moment, and pack the time of shutter speed into it. For instance, Hiroshi Sugimoto's “Theatre”, “Seascape”, and “Diorama” storongly demonstrate this kind of time. These works were created on film, but t it would be possible to express it digitally like the “jpeg” of THOMAS RUFF.
In this work, in order to make this idea into shape, I developed a program that combines dozens or thousands of photographs taken for a long time and combined them into a single photograph as rectangles.
seconds (myself) is one of the photograph that takes this idea and method.
While I work for an IT company as a specialist of Information security, I take pictures to represent “the mutually complementary relation between civilizations and human in the daily life”.
I was born in July 1961 in Yamagata prefecture and currently reside in Tokyo.
I graduate in 1982 from the hardware department of the computer technical school.
I studied photography at JAPAN CENTER OF PHOTOGRAPHY.
