Japanese Photographer / Artist, b.1984
The series of copied photographs of posters looking for lost pet animals. Most of these pictures were probably taken casually in daily life, being forgotten in computers or cell phones. However, absence of the subjects caused sentiment and these photographs were displayed to the world because of their roles as information. The photographer says he “feels a guilty pleasure peeping at private visual experience of other people, and the specificity of photography as media that changes its value and role with time and environment”.
