Yoshihiko Ito was born in Yamagata, Japan, 1951 and graduated from the Tokyo College of Photography in 1977. His works are unique contact sheets of a half size camera which express one image on one contact sheet and invisible time and conscious between subject and him on one contact sheet.
The printed image made from strips of film shot by a half-size split frame 35 mm camera are conceived to be seen as one image, as a pattern. The image contains a story of passage of time. In his words “in our world, no dividing lines exist in space or time. I live in this world observing things as they change or remain the same, or change yet so slowly that no one notices. These observations and imaginations guide the way for what I create.”
We are pleased to present over 40 pieces of prints from Yoshihiko’s Kage projects of 35mm file to contact print in 8”x10” paper. Each print tells the different stories. Welcome to join us meeting with Yoshihiko Ito as well as the artist talk on June 2nd Saturday 14:30.
