Satoshi Fujiwara (*Kobe, 1984, currently based in Berlin), initiates a pressing and critical action on the gazer, through the focal length set from portrayed subjects and the heterogeneous definition of his photographs, diverting from the standards of photo-journalism and from an exclusively documentary dimension, thus producing a new emerging lexicon.
Since 2015 his works have been exhibited internationally at numerous institutions such as Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto (MOCA Toronto), Canada; Fondazione Prada, Italy; La Boverie, Belgium; 21_21 Design Sight, Japan; Deutsche Oper Berlin, Germany; among others. He has also participated in numerous art and photography fairs, art festivals, and biennales such as Biennale de l’Image Possible, Belgium; Art Souterrain, Canada; Photo London, UK; Paris Photo, France; Unseen Photo Fair Amsterdam, Netherland; among others. In parallel to the projects Fujiwara has also had several collaborations with international institutions and brands such as Sharjah Architecture Triennial, UAE; Deutsche Oper Berlin, Germany, and Issey Miyake, Japan. His maiden book Code Unknown was published by IMA Photobooks in 2015. He has also published several books in collaboration such as 5k Confinement - Hd Environment Surface Surveillance, Luigi Alberto Cippini, Fondazione Prada; Horses, Walther König.
