Fujiyasu photographed every part of his and his twin brother’s body for his first work, DZ Dizygotic Twins. For 34, he photographed his father in the same manner, with “time” as akeyword, and in another series, empathize, he photographed other sets of twins individually intheir rooms or places of personal importance.
Through all of these works, he has explored the theme of interpersonal relationships. When showing the empathize series thus far, exhibiting each twin’s portrait framed separately has conveyed a strong sense of personal identity through sometimes subtle, sometimes obvious differences in the living environments and personalities of the subjects.
In this show, Fujiyasu takes a new approach to rendering visible the “relationality with twins as axis” he has dealt with in his photography thus far. We are sure you will enjoy this novel development of the empathize series.
