Hiroshi Takizawa

Hiroshi Takizawa (b. 1983) explores physical texture and materiality in works that focus on cement and stone. Having completed his academic studies in criminal psychology, Takizawa sees a photograph as both a documentation of ‘evidence’ and an expression of human emotion. In his “Concrete is on My Mind Figure” series, he photographs various concrete slabs as a witness of human activities, and then twists and sculpts the images to remind the viewer of the fragility and weightlessness of the photographic paper that the images are printed on.
