MASAFUMI SANAI »PYLON« – selected by Greger HISAKO MOTOO

»Masafumi Sanai seems to be a child of mixed race, between photography and human. He was asked, 57 ”How many percent are you photography?”. He answered, “70 % is photography and the rest is a human.” Also, he said that photographs could be changed only by photography itself. In early 2012, the exhibition pylon was held in Tokyo, accompanied by its publication. Many different people visited the exhibition and left many comments … “Sanai has been exploring something, although he knew he could not achieve anything.” “I have never stayed at an exhibition space for such a long time. Every time I look again, I find different views in his images.” This book is a kind of turning point for Sanai. In the last few years, he has chosen a larger scale, but the book is compact and more obsessive. In his own words: “Today is always brighter than tomorrow.”«
