The intention of the Japanese photographer Akira Rachi is to show new visions of photography as a kind of “visual philosophy” in a minimalist way.
The photographs themselves are characterized by simplicity, light and composition.
Considering these parts, they seem to appear in a reduced way but this simplicity shows complexity at the same time just like it happens in common situations in society. Thus interpretation and associativities are requested and offered to the viewers.
The title “Gravity” describes the process of co-existing elements such as strength and weakness. One photographic concept of Rachi is to document ambiguous experiences in everyday life, for example in cities like Tokyo, London and Berlin. Viewers are expected to participate in these ambivalent moments to find different relationships between photographs and themselves. The result will be a regenerated, perceptual view of reality which should be different in comparison to the past perceptions. Citizen will also find different aspects of their cities.



The exhibition is presented by the JapanFoundation
