Issei Suda made a name for himself in the Japanese photographic world through his 6 x 6 black-and-white prints that bare the unexpected—and often unsettling—dimensions lurking in, otherwise, perfectly mundane subjects. Now, a new collection focuses on a perhaps less celebrated, but no less arresting side of his art: his color photography. The roughly 150 works cover ‘Fragment of Everyday Life (1983–1984)’, Suda’s first series of medium-format colour photography, and four Polaroid series from the turn of this century including ‘Spot’, which seeks to capture the “residues” lingering at the sites of past incidents.⁠⠀
“Just like the past does not exist in front of our eyes, everyday life has no substance either.”⁠⠀
“What I continue doing is something I would describe as digging my nails into each and every thing that I don’t even have the skills to acquire.”⁠ (from the artist’s afterword)
