About

RISAKU SUZUKI (*1963, Japan) SAKURA 15,4-66 2015 Chromogenic print Sheet 75 x 60 cm (29 1/2 x 23 5/8 in.) Edition of 5; Ed. no. 1/10 Print only The Sakura (Japanese term for ‘cherry blossoms’) Celebration commences in early spring and has inspired artists since the reign of the Emperor Saga in 8th century Japan. The impressive blooming of the trees after winter symbolizes hope and strength, but as the petals fall, one is reminded of the fragility of beauty and life itself. Risaku Suzuki’s painterly photographs evoke the sensation of passing time within the permanence of the photographic frame. Suzuki captures the trees without a context or narrative, grasping the physical structure as the essence of the symbolism. The viewer is engaged with a place beyond the visible. By abandoning the ground and concentrating on the relationship between the blossoms and the sky, the works possess a weightless and effervescent air. Tight framing and large format printing eliminate the distraction of neighboring objects, yet maintain a vast landscape for the viewer. Attention is called to the world of motion beyond the frame, intimately connecting the photograph to an individual’s wandering gaze. Memorializing the perspective of a quick glance enables one to glimpse with a duration and depth impossible to realize in person. 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, Tree, Sky, Colour, Japan, Light, Spring, Flower, Cherry Blossom.
