TORANSUPEARENTO (transparent) is VERTIGOs hallucinatory sibling.
Printed entirely on transparency film and edited by using sandwiches of several transparency pages alternated by white pages and colored vinyl pages. The publication is tracing Daisuke Yokota´s creative process by showing the transformations of his images. Transitions from the original until a new image and expression. Abstraction and halluzination are enforced by visual distorsions when looking through several transparencies at one time.
Born in 1983, Saitama, Yokota majored in Photography at Nippon Photography Institute in Tokyo. As the winner of the first Outset | Unseen Exhibition Fund at Unseen Photo Fair 2013, he presented a solo exhibition at Foam Photography Museum, Amsterdam, in 2014 with a series of his work that has been added to the museum collection. In the same year, his photography book VERTIGO was nominated for the Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards. In 2015, he performed at “Shashin: Photography from Japan,” New York, and participating in “In the Wake Japanese Photographers Respond to 3/11,” Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, “Another Language,” Rencontres d’Arles as well as “trans-tokyo / trans-photo,” Jinmei x Arles International Photo Festival.
