Gentaro Ishizuka is, for the most part, self-taught in the art of photography. After dropping our of the prestigious Waseda University Ishizuka traveled through 60 countries from the likes of Sri Lanka to Germany, recording his travels using his camera. He also participated in the Gelatin Silver Sessions, which I wrote about a while back.

His upcoming show, “Inner Passage” is at the Gallery White Room and opens on August 1st. The show consists of a series of images taken from a canoe floating down the waterways that so quietly infiltrate the booming metropolis known as Tokyo.

Below is an image from a previous show entitled “You went too far north,” in which the artist captures his intrigue towards an oil pipeline – a vein that pumps blood into our industrialized modern society – that spans the desolate land of Alaska.
