Kenta Nakamura is a portrait, documentary, contemporary photographer based in Fukuoka and Tokyo, Japan. Born in 1981. He works professionally for a photo studio, LOBJET. He approaches photography as a series of contrasts and vivid images in daily life and considers photography as a medium as a tool for communication. His aim is to draw out emotions from the viewer and reciprocally communicate with them. He was a finalist in 2018 for the LensCulture Exposure Awards and his work has been exhibited internationally throughout Japan, Milan, New York, Paris, and Russia.
Taking photograph is often used to show the subject with some kind of meaning or thoughts behind it. However, I wanted to give my pieces a different purpose. This project is taken in three different situations. Portrait, documentary and set up. By making the subject wearing 3D glasses, it weakens the identity of the subject. I wanted the audiences to recall their own stories by being “watched” from the subject of my pieces.
