YOZO TAKADA

WHO
Yozo Takada

WHAT
Photographing artificial landscapes.

WHEN
2002 to present

WHERE
Tokyo,  Japan

WHY
To find our nature. Drawn to the beauty of nature, we create artificial imitations. Devoted to the ultimate artificiality, we end up finding the unpredictability of our body. That is the way our nature is. 

 

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PRACTICE IN THREE WORDS:
Scientific eye, Artificial landscape, Nonsense.

WHERE DO YOU DRAW INSPIRATION FROM?
Isolation.

WHAT MAKES YOU STAND OUT FROM OTHERS IN YOUR FIELD? 
I have my own private places. If my idea goes well, I can feel as if I assimilate with the photographic devices. The photographic device automatically takes pictures and transfers. I am the only photographer inside those places.

WHAT PROJECT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
Proto Landscape, which was my first work that I made and exhibited overseas.

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE CREATIVITY?
We are who have a camera’s eye with two legs. The camera’s eye analyzes the world to change it to be homogeneous grids. The two legs walk at random throughout the grids and bring irregularity. That combination or non-combination is what is creativity.
