Yosuke Takeda

  • Yosuke Takeda started from experimenting with darkroom photography production and he shifted over to digital photography, aware that photographic film and paper were becoming obsolete. Takeda’s work is related to the strong tendency of Japanese art to be planar. This is in the tradition of Ukiyo-­e woodblock prints and contemporary graphic design. Takeda recently works with what he calls the “digital flare,” the artifacts that result from traces of light on the camera lens that become part of the image. In the photographs, the overexposed white light becomes indistinguishable from the white paper the work is printed on.
