Japan Exposures is pleased to offer an extended view of the photography of Sachiko Kadoi, who was born and raised in Tokyo. Her sensitive photos of the contemporary Japanese landscape evidence a contemplative, mature eye that belies the fact that she has only been actively pursuing photography since 2003.
The gallery below is comprised of photos from Kadoi’s first book, Kadoi Sachiko: Photographs 2003-2008, published last Fall by Sokyusha.
Kadoi is interested in those places and scenes that reveal man’s existence even when there is seemingly no one present. As Kadoi herself has written, “Everywhere I go, I can always find evidence of human life. In uninhabited landscapes I see human beings.”
An interview was conducted with Sachiko Kadoi during the last week of December, 2008 and can be read here.
