Opening Hours

Although after 1945 European and American influences played a certain role in Japanese photography, post war artists were inspired by the reservoir of specific Japanese imagery, just like it developed in fine art. As a central theme they picked out specific „Japanese“ topics like vast cityscapes as places of „chaos-like“ but vivid communities as well as the conflict between traditional life styles and modern living.

"Thank you ! Mr. Jim Coe"
My site was introduced by Jim Coe.
It is very intellectual, and it is a precise criticism. It appreciates him. "ART, DOCUMENTARY, BIOGRAPHY ?" In one of the lovely paradoxes of art, as artists documents the world, they document themselves. When their work is also presented sequentially, we can grasp something of their creative development. In his gorgeously-designed website (a work of art unto itself), Norio Kobayshi shows us his growth as a photographer. The first images, "Agharta," are his discovery of photography as a child. Later, he creates monochrome documentary images of the earth, in "Landscapes 1." In the following "Landscapes 2," the same subject is treated in color and with a more concentrated, abstract vision. In "Membrane," we experience Mr. Kobayashi's exploration of digital color photography and his innovations in the use of the Web. So here, we get a quadruple treat! Excellent documentary photos, wonderful abstract art, fresh Web ideas and an "image autobiography" of an evolving, exploring artist. Jim Coe, (BRIEFME weekly e-zine U.S.A.)
