Archive: Daisuke Nakashima

Photographer Daisuke Nakashima, whose wonderful work we’ve already featured here in November 2011, has send us a another beautiful series of pictures taken in the past months. Most of them are part of a body of work entitled “fluorescence”, which explores surfaces and textures of different kinds – especially the human skin. For more of Daisuke’s work please visit his website. You also find a pretty recent video interview with him by VICE Japan on YouTube.

Many pictures of Tokyo based photographer Daisuke Nakashima at first sight look like snapshots, but according to the artist they were all set up carefully, focusing on what he calls “the gap in the rhythm of life between myself and others”. Nakashima portrays his surrounding environment and the people within it, seeking to create distinct atmospheres, while leaving enough a lot of space for the viewer’s imagination. Most of the photographs below have been published in his photo book “each other” from 2008, which can be ordered both via Seigensha Art Publishing (Japan) or via Dashwood Books (US). For more of his work and current exhibitions check out his website.
