Daisuke Yokota

Japan, Tokyo G/P gallery

Daisuke Yokota (b. 1983, Japan) is part of a generation of young artists who interact with photography in a different approach. Combining methods of rephotographing and printing, applying acid or flame to the resulting images, and making unique prints and books from unexpected materials in staged public performances, Yokota’s experimental technique won him the Outset Unseen Award in 2013 and the John Kobal residency award for an emerging artist at the Photo London earlier this year.
