inkjet prints, Dimensions Variable
In Japan, 2LDK stands for apartment with 2 Bedrooms, Living room, Dining room and Kitchen.
Widespread use of frosted or textured glass on Japanese windows gives them a blurry, near impressionist appearance. Attracted by the way the glass allows a glimpse into privacy but still protects anonymity, the restrained voyeur in me started a photo collection of such mysterious windows.
The Trophy Room
Like a hunter exhibits trophies on a wall, I install my catches into views of my own apartment in Tokyo. The resulting photography is a hybrid mix of Japanese private spaces. By putting personal belongings, pieces of furniture and digital photographic objects on the same level, I try to give a contemporary twist to the tradition of still life.
This project is my personal and subjective photographic answer to the question: How do the Japanese live at home? At the same time, it might also reveal how photography, like an obsession, can invade the mind and the space of the photographer.
