Earlier this week, I had the good fortune to meet Japanese artist-photographers Aki Lumi and Yuki Onodera in the studio they share in Paris. (Thanks to Korean photographer Han Sungpil for making the introductions.)
Aki and Yuki have each made remarkably diverse bodies of work — all rooted in photography yet taking fanciful, philosophical and intellectual flights of imagination. I'm pleased to present here one of many series that I admire quite a bit. Check back soon to discover some more art by each of these artists.
Here is an excerpt of an essay about Aki Lumi's work, written by Linn K:
The “traceryscape” works might be called singular “event photographs,” which arise through the careful layering of two photographs: the “real landscapes” of the outside world and those of another dimension that exists in parallel to them – the dimension of “imaginary lines and shapes” taken from the expanses of our awareness.
Be sure to check out the high-resolution slide show and some of the detail photographs. Cheers!
