Photographer Takimoto Mikiya is active at the forefront of his field, publishing works in various media with a recent focus on film. With "snow" as the theme, "CHAOS 2020" is like an answer song composed in response to the famous "Snow Garden" at Myoman-ji Temple, a place that captures the timeless, unique sense of beauty inherited by Japanese people in their DNA. The photos are taken from a bird’s eye view.
During the same exhibition period, Takimoto’s masterpiece “LAND SPACE” comprised of primordial Earth, represented by “LAND”, contrasted against “SPACE”, symbols of the frontiers of civilization. “LAND SPACE 2020” will be displayed at Sfera’s exhibition space in Gion, along with several of Takimoto’s unpublished works.
