Satoshi Fujiwara (*Kobe, 1984, currently based in Berlin), initiates a pressing and critical action on the gazer, through the focal length set from portrayed subjects and the heterogeneous definition of his photographs, diverting from the standards of photo-journalism and an exclusively documentary dimension, thus producing a new emerging lexicon.
Since 2015 his works have been exhibited internationally at numerous institutions such as Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto, Canada, 2019-2020; Fondazione Prada, Italy, 2017; La Boverie (former Palais des beaux-arts de Liège), Belgium, 2018; 21_21 Design Sight, Japan, 2018; Deutsche Oper Berlin, Germany, 2016; among others. He has also participated in numerous art and photography fairs, art festivals, and biennales such as Biennale de l’Image Possible, Belgium; Art Souterrain, Canada; Photo London, UK; Paris Photo, France; Unseen Photo Fair Amsterdam, Netherland; among others. In parallel to the projects, Fujiwara has also had several collaborations with international institutions and brands such as Sharjah Architecture Triennial, UAE; Deutsche Oper Berlin, Germany, and Issey Miyake, Japan. IMA published his maiden book Code Unknown in 2015.
