It's been a long time since I started shooting them.
I finally got to see them from a distance.
Kinkan Gallery is pleased to present "Period," an exhibition of photographs by Erina Izawa from December 3 to December 25. She has been photographing her younger brother since the time when she started to work on photography in earnest, and then continued to photograph her younger brother and her partner, who later became her husband, as if looking at the relationship between herself and them. This exhibition, "Period," is the conclusion of a body of work that she has been taking for more than a decade. If the transformation of people and landscapes in the photographs is obvious, we realize that years have passed. On the other hand, changes and fluctuations in emotion and consciousness may not be obvious at first glance, but sometime we capture something from the photographs which is floating over there. Perhaps Izawa takes photographs as an act of searching for something that can only appear through photography. I believe that through the long period of time she has been photographing and standing by them, such a subtle change in Izawa's gaze and yet something unchanging is quietly present in his photographs. The days are quietly changing, and the appearance changes minutely. Please take this opportunity to view the exhibition.
