Altus | photographs that show the beauty of white space

altus takashi suzuki (1)

Altus is a Latin adjective meaning “high, deep, noble or profound.” In a photographic body of work by the same name, Takashi Suzuki presents a series of minimal landscapes that are delicately interrupted by white space.

“In this series, my interest is in interspace and space,” says the artist. He goes on to explain that his work is about the beauty and perception of negative space or margins; even more so than the actual landscapes themselves.
Indeed, normally I would feel annoyed or turned off by such a radical gap in scenery but these photos are incredibly calming. It’s as if the negative space is supposed to be there.

Suzuki’s photos are currently part of the group show “cognition / recognition” in Tokyo that runs through 4/19/2014.

  1. Thank you berry much for stopping by a group exhibition in Tokyo and introduce my work in your blog. And I am glad you clearly point out what I’m try to do with my work. Thanks again.
    However, in that text of last paragraph, you worte Oshima’s photos are currently part of the group show “cognition / recognition” in Tokyo that runs through 4/19/2014.
    But is it Suzuki’s photos are….isn’t it?
    I’m just concerned a bit.

  2. @Suzuki-san, sorry about that! Not sure how that happened, but it’s fixed now.
