Hiroshi Watanabe – ‘Findings’

Hiroshi Watanabe’s ‘Findings’ – “These are honest and direct pictures; they bear a heavy silence, and are uncomplicated, singular ideas. These words invite a closer look uncompromised by time. They suggest a meditation that can bring to the surface what could otherwise have remained hidden – that opening in the sky beyond the child and his maze, and what it can mean.” Anthoy Bannon, George Eastman House Director

“My photographs reflect both genuine interest in my subject as well as a respect for the element of serendipity, while other times I seek pure beauty. The pure enjoyment of this process drives and inspires me. I believe there’s a thread that connects all of my work — my personal vision of the world as a whole. I make every effort to be a faithful visual recorder of the world around me, a world in flux that, at very least in my mind, deserves preservation.”

The photographs are available as a photo book.
