To know the conditions of the object’s formation– this is the purpose of my photography, which is founded on a desire to pursue metamathematic propositions such as `the possibility of existence’ and `the possibility of optional choice’.

Shigeru Onishi (1928-1994)

Shigeru Onishi was a mathematician and photographer-artist. He published Super Function Theory (1970) including his text A Study of Meta-Infinite, both derived from topology. Onishi, who was regarded as one of the photographers in the style of Subjective Photography in the 1950s, created artwork as mathematical practice based on his “Meta-infinite” theory using various techniques such as multiple exposures, toning, and special developing techniques in the darkroom. The artist used brushstroke on photographic paper during the development process to create special touches.

I travel on work. When that gets too tiring then I relax by travelling for holidays. The holidays are pretty hectic, so I need to unwind by getting back home. But that means work.
