Artist’s statement




We first met, in the late 90’s, while still students at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milano, the school where we both got a degree in photography. After that, we took different roads, building our careers and defining our styles and the way we approach photography. Now, after more than 15 years, we meet again in Tokyo. Talking about our experiences, we found out that we both observe the surrounding spaces looking for the harmony and peace in the modern, chaotic urban landscape. It is an unseen harmony that most of us simply don’t notice. But once you slow down and start to contemplate what’s around, there it is. It is a balance of opposites that seems to be particularly present in Japan therefore we like to call it “Japanism”. Photographically while both works are based on the form we approach it in two different ways, one is shot in film and based more on the light while the other, shot in digital, is more about shapes. Two distinct approaches, looking for the Japanism in the modern cityscape.
