Japan Works by Aglaia Konrad
A collection of works by Austrian artist Aglaia Konrad , who lives in Belgium .
Although Conrad's photographic works consistently depict architecture and cities, she actually explores the social and cultural influences that influence architecture and urban structures. economic, political and historical factors.
This work, which was produced during a one-month stay in Japan in 2019, features post-war Metabolist architecture scattered in cities such as Tokyo, Itoigawa, Kyoto, Nagoya, and Osaka, as well as Japanese urban landscapes. He has also taken many photographs of unnamed buildings that give a unique impression. Combining a number of iconic monochrome photographs printed on the page with color pages of contact sheets that can be read as a record of the trip, it is somewhat light despite the overwhelming weight of about 500 pages. It is a book with a rhythm.
A comprehensive collection of Conrad's works created with a publisher who has been a longtime collaborator.
