  • Section : International project

A solo exhibition “Absence and Ambience” was held at the Daiwa Foundation Japan House Gallery in London, England. Over the past few years, I have shown my works in galleries and art fairs in Europe, but this solo show focused to give a deeper presentation of my works. In this project, the exhibition space was created to evoke perspective on nature in both Japan and Europe, together with its own history and cultures with the two keywords “Absence” and “Ambience”. With these keywords that represent my works in the past, I tried to present my works to the audience and the contemporary photography community in Europe significantly.
