Yoshihiko ITO, born in Yamagata, Japan in 1951 and graduated from the Tokyo College of Photography in 1977. He has been exhibiting his Patrone series since the year 2000. In Patrone, Ito takes a consecutive sequence of images taken in the same setting and collapses the separate moments into a single restructured image. Till 2015, he employed the frottage method of pencil rubbing on paper. Yoshihiko Ito’ works consist of contact sheets in which individual frames come together to form a whole image on each sheet, expressing the invisible time and consciousness shared between himself and his subjects.
