Having lived in Europe for seven years, Japanese artist Aoki Takamasa, whose music work has been endorsed by the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto and Thom Yorke, returned to Japan last year. Earlier this month, I attended the opening party of his third photography exhibitionheld at Bloom Gallery in Osaka. I found his landscapes particularly interesting. They are somewhat detached and seem as if taken by an alien with everlasting curiosity.
