TAKEHITO MIYATAKE @ Steven Kasher Gallery

 From Arimura village, the Showa crater, the most active volcano in Sakurajima, cannot usually be seen  unless some of the cinders soar really high.

TAKEHITO MIYATAKE
MAY 28 – JUNE 7, 2014

Takehito Miyatake’s work explores the interplay between what he describes as the “light of Japan” and the natural landscape, and the connection between land, water and sky. His noted series of photographs of the Sakurajima volcano taken while erupting are shown alongside images of tranquil water bays with rocks and boats reminiscent of Japanese scroll paintings, a bridge surrounded by streaks of light produced by the glow of fireflies in flight, a wooded area with bursts of light glowing like lanterns, a moon rising above black lava rock, and a star trail rendered in concentric circles that shows the spinning motion of the Earth.
