Gelatin silver print on fiber base paper, each 120 x 144 cm (and 50 x 60 cm), 7 works
These works were produced by aiming two cameras at each other in a dark room, clicking their shutters at the same time, and using the flash of the camera that is the subject as the sole illumination source. The resulting photo captures the “subject” camera, which contains no film, and the seeming infinity of space behind it. Photographing the object that usually photographs is an articulation of the concept of “a photograph of something refusing to be photographed”, of a photograph that cannot be taken” and a questioning of the nature of the act of photography and the camera itself. The artist exhibited this work by invitation at the 1997 2nd Tokyo International Photo-Biennale at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography.
