bio:

Yasuyuki Takagi is a photographer / director born in Tokyo, Japan.

He studied Media Arts at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York and lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. He assisted many leading photographers both art and commercial. Among his mentors include Koto Bolofo, Elliott Erwitt and Stefan Ruiz.

 

In 2012 he was a finalist at 27th International Hyeres Festival of Photography and CCNY Camera Club of New York international competition in 2014. He has collaborated with an award winning IT firm ARAT in Tokyo. By viewing a photograph through a technological device such as a smart phone or tablet, the photograph can become animated. This blurs the boundaries of still and motion imaging. This collaboration and his artistic direction had been shown worldwide in Tent London, Tokyo Design week, Maison & Objet Paris, PAD ART FAIR Paris, ISETAN in Tokyo Japan.

 

His personal work has been exhibited at the Capsule Gallery, Corridor Gallery, Lorimoto Gallery in New York, Artligue Gallery in Paris and IMA gallery, 2nd annual Kyotographie International photography festival, Atelier MUJI, 21_21 Design Sight in Japan.

 

He is a contributor to such publications for The New York Times T style magazine, Sunday Telegraph magazine, Le Monde M magazine and Wallpaper magazine amongst others.

 

His first book "小さな深い森 Petite Foret Profonde" was published December 2013 by funny bones editions in Paris. His second book "植木 UEKI" was published in Autumn 2015 by IKI editions Leers France. His new book "マロニエ Marronnier" was shortlisted at ARLES2019 Rencontres de la photographie Dummy Books award.

 

His directing works includes: “How to be like Tom Sachs" a portrait of artist Tom Sachs, "A portrait of a Place: Arakicho" for Nowness, "Hello Korea" US Olympics and Paralympics team Pyeong Chang 2018 for US Embassy of Seoul Korea and "Jungjin LEE" for IMA living with photography.
