Meteoroscape photography expressed the “Sightseeing in Japan, or Follow the precedent”
It is etude which symbolically expresses the present of Japan which is becoming a destination for tourists. At the same time it serves as an introduction of the genre “Contemporary Art Photography”.
When you use photography as a work, the question might be thrown; can you say that photography is Art? This is because it is mechanical, reproduced, and replicable. But what is Art in the first place? It’s more troublesome because it’s fraught with problems.
In my opinion, Art is divided into three mainly; “Idea”, “Design”, and “Contemporary Art”, which should be differently defined as these aims are not in the same. Photographic works are similarly created in a similarly corresponding these methodologies, and the difference for example, between photography and drawing, is only the production method.
However, I think that it is very difficult to explain because objectively viewing the definition of Art itself enters the idea of Contemporary Art.
Here, we aim to introduce the definition of Contemporary Art and the corresponding genre of “Contemporary Art Photography” by following a precedent, and to gain an understanding of the holding of photography exhibitions.
They are not photographs which shows the village which protects the old-fashioned life as it is, and they are not photographs of a beautiful house designed, and they are photographs which reflects the appearance of the present age.
