Junichi Hakoyama , between shadow and light

Japanese photographer Junichi Hakoyama explores the city’s geometrical lines through a subtle display of light and shadows. This high-contrast black and white architectural imagery seems inspired by film noir atmosphere : depth and intrigue through dark images with just one dark figure denoting a dramatic scene. Junichi Hakoyama seems to find beauty in this minimalist darkness. A simple crossing becomes an artful masterpiece, a seemingly boring staircase is transformed into a sculptural form. Light and shadows are the only companion of this solitary silhouette who looks like a moving scultpure walking somewhere in the frame.
