About

RISAKU SUZUKI (*1963, Japan) Between the Sea and the Mountain – Kumano 14,DK-507 2014 Chromogenic print Sheet 95.2 x 119 cm ( 37 1/2 x 46 7/8 in.) Edition of 5; Ed. no. 2/5 Print only The theme of 'Between the Sea and the Mountain – Kumano' is the shooting of pre-mythological landscapes. The series records the path starting at the sea and leading to the mountains via the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route, which was created through years of work by both man and nature. In our contemporary society flooded with photographs shot with digital cameras and cell phones, the act of looking at photographs is frequently carried out as a means to confirm known information, making any surprising visual experience rare. This situation has forced Suzuki to become self-conscious about the photographic medium. Suzuki aimed to capture the landscapes of Kumano that ancient peoples saw and identified as mythic sights. He strove to capture primordial landscapes that were seen before people learned to read and define objects of their gaze cerebrally. In this series, he released the shutter in response to light, wind, and sound in order to incorporate fluctuations in the external environment. Risaku Suzuki was born in 1963 in Wakayama Prefecture, Japan and now lives and works in Tokyo. He is well known for his dedicated series of pictures from Kumano, Wakayama Prefecture, one of Japan's most sacred places and the home of Suzuki. One of Japan's most prominent photographers, Suzuki presents unmistakably Japanese subjects - like cherry blossoms and snow - which are both timeless and refreshingly new. ‘In my opinion, contemporary photography should be based on conceptual thoughts and committed to creation. It takes strength and enthusiasm to make photography your goal in life. The opinion that pictures of every day life, like those of his dog, his girlfriend and the like, are equal to creative expression, would be too undemanding. To really emphasize the ‘power of photography’, deep passion is central - in every age and situation - and the ability of a photographer to visualize a concept.’ – Risaku Suzuki — Landscape Photography, Nature, Colour, Japan, Light, Blue, Water, Trees, Summer, Snapshot Aesthetic
