  • Catalogue Essay

    Combining a digital camera and an old analogue-era lens, Yosuke Takeda explores the possibilities of photography in his mesmerising series Digital Flare. Reminiscent of an abstract painting in its composition and flat image surface, the present work showcases flare and blown-out highlights – technically undesirable results from shooting into the sun – as its subject. Takeda photographed this view through the leafy branches of a forest in his home region of Aichi Prefecture. His works are held in institutional and corporate collections, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Banco de España.
