Motohiro Takeda

Moving to New York City when he was twenty-one years old, Motohiro Takeda received a BFA on photography from Parsons the New School for Design in 2008. He is interested in the ephemeral and transient nature of time and space and the concept of memory that is, whether it is social or personal, evoked from these elements. He works intensively with analogue photography where light plays very important roles in producing photographic prints and he believes that analogue photography introduces and increases the sense of craft in his works.

Today we take a look at his series titled, Untitled (Invitations Others).
