DAISUKE YOKOTA
When I made the shift from film to digital some years ago, it dawned on me that certain technical and financial limits had been pushed back and I could take many shots. But at the same time, the consciousness I brought to each of my works seemed to weaken. When I see all these files saved in such huge numbers, they always look different than what I had imagined. Since I often photograph at night, I rely on senses other than sight, such as hearing. Photography sometimes manages to turn the spectacle of the present moment into a recollection, but it fails to capture my memory or emotions, as though filtering my field of vision. I tend to see the world through those effects. That’s why it seems indispensable for me to make those invisible things visible.
