Yachiyo ENOMOTO “20050810”
In this exhibition, merely you can see the photographs of shoes, clothes, toys, which were belong to a four year old boy, and landscape images around his apartment, where he used to live.
Those his belongings were supposed be used, if he were growing up. Instead, they were not used by him, were hidden in the back of the cupboard for a long time, were not discarded nor given to another child.
11 years, they were in the place where they belong, never forgotten, just stay there. She knew that her beloved one is gone, just she could not face this fact. Because if she admits her loss, this could be as same as the end of her own life.
In the spring of 2016, Yachiyo Enomoto, the mother, an exhibiting photographer, took out his belongings from the box, placed it in front of her camera and started taking photographs of them. Photography as her tool, by using it, she thought she could face her sad memories.

Takashi Hamasaki “Traces of time”
The low peaks of the Rokko Mountains lie to the north of Kobe in JAPAN. This is a popular hiking destination and a summer resort for the wealthy. However, if you deviate from the mountain trail and explore the byroads, you will find abandoned houses, recreation facilities and companies.
I was attracted by the atmosphere that surrounded me when I crossed the entrances. The houses without masters, where people used to spend their lives, started to reflect the boundary between “higan” (“enlightenment”) and “shigan” (“bound by earthly desires”) to me. The memories of those that lived there
seemed to linger; you can even feel the presence of their breath and voices.
I took photos portraits of these houses as beautiful and sublime existence.

MATSUBARA Yutaka “Local public bath” / “Osore-zan”
Artwork Description “Local public bath”
In Japan, there are unique mass culture places called “Sento (public bath)”.
I am currently taking documentary photographs of “Sento” in place where I live, Mie prefecture (known for Ise Jingu and Suzuka Circuit).
“Sento” are decreasing due to aging of facilities and managers, but there are a lot of male bath and female bath with different wall drawings, which makes the design also to be interesting and pleasant.
Also, could find historical marks in old “Sento”, expressing the passage of time and lived-in feeling, from old, long time used peculiar places (like cracked tiles lining on the wall).
Will present Japan’s mass culture, “Sento”, which soon may disappear, by detailed documentary photographs.
