Osamu Matsuo - What are you looking at from inside the photograph
Why do people take pictures? What is a good photograph? Through practical images and profound essays, Osamu Matsuo approaches these and many other fundamental questions surrounding photography in a series of intimate and personal reflections, referential contemplations, and artistic musings. While recognising that his thoughts on photography are ever-changing, he informally writes about a range of topics and themes such as premonition, absence, animation, photography and time, and camera size. Our lives today are overflowing with photography, but Matsuo hopes that, when confronted with obvious principles, the medium’s enigmatic appeal returns to the surface.
