Camera Obscura‘s selection
Sarah Moon rarely works in color, so we are pleased this year to present two new photographs, taken in the 1990s but printed for this edition of Paris Photo. (The carbon-ink prints were made by Tod Gangler.) Of the two, “Fashion 11,” shot for Yohji Yamamoto, in 1996, is quickly becoming a classic. Two prints were sold on the opening night of the fair.
Takashi Arai is one of the few contemporary Japanese daguerreotype photographers. His use of the process shows that he is no devotee to the past: a recent exhibition at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo featured a striking installation condemning the dangers of nuclear energy in the wake of Fukushima. We are presenting four of his daguerreotypes (20x25cm) from the series Mirrors of Our Nights.”
Jungjin Lee: This incredible photograph by the Korean artist Jungjin Lee is another work we are exhibiting at Paris Photo. In the series Wind (available from Aperture), Jungjin photographs desolate places where nature reigns supreme and only a trace of humanity remains.
