A hallucinatory night walk in the outskirts of Tokyo, where sleepy suburbia emerges as otherworldly dreamscape. The occasional eerie appearance of a girl evokes riveting imageries: could this be the backdrop for a nocturnal crime scene? Or are we drawn into a tale of irretrievable loss and love?

For this photo essay Daisuke Yokota shot his haunting images on colour film before changing them to a monochrome palette. The camera staggers around without fixing its attention, resulting in a stream of images of trees, parked cars, street corners and forlorn buildings.

The work of Yokota unpretentiously traverses the boundaries between the digital and the analogue, overdeveloping film, re-photographing and scanning images and warping them with heat, dust or acid. Yokota’s energetic and unique process is permeated by the spectral qualities of the medium.

About the author

Daisuke Yokota (1983) is at the frontline of a new movement of Japanese experimental photographers. Yokota is working out of, and pushing forward, a Japanese photography tradition that harks back to the intuitive experimentation of the Provoke generation. In this exhibition, Yokota focuses on the aspect of volume and material of photography, pushing the medium and its perception forward into ever more original directions.
