Takashi Suzuki

Japan, Tokyo KANA KAWANISHI GALLERY

Takashi Suzuki was born in 1971 in Kyoto, Japan. He graduated from the Photography Department of The Art Institute of Boston. He was a guest student in the photography class of Thomas Ruff at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and also worked as the assistant for Thomas Struth during his years in Germany.

In his latest BAU series, he attempts to find how many sculptural forms one can create by using assemblages of particular mundane items. It promotes a differentiation of context, instilling potentially unexpected propositions. Rather than 'what' the actual photographic subject is, his interest is towards 'how' the photographic subject is perceived. Suzuki’s core motivation towards creation is to explore new definitions of seeing photography.
