Yoshitaka Goto has more than 10 years of experience with Lomography film cameras, specializing in multiple exposures, in which multiple subjects are layered on top of each other on the film during shooting. Many of his works are created using tricky techniques such as masking the lens vertically or horizontally, or reattaching the previously shot film to the camera and re-shooting from the beginning again.
Multiple exposures are often thought of as the product of chance, but his work is not limited to this. He is greatly influenced by the work of film director Christopher Nolan, and his desire is to express the world of his films through multiple exposures. Many of Mr. Nolan’s works are a complex interplay of time and space. His filming methods include moving across countries and intersecting time axes by rewinding the film. In addition, he plans his shoots meticulously to ensure the expression of Mr. Nolan’s worldview. This is his “Mission. Selected works from “Mission,” a photo book containing such works by Yoshitaka Goto, as well as past masterpieces will be exhibited and sold.
The artist will be present during the entire exhibition period. Please enjoy his world of work while listening to him talk about his thoughts on his work and rare photographic techniques. A newly published book of his works will also be on sale at the venue.
