Edition: First Edition of 750
Illustrated with 83 images of the artist's abstract color photography, a body of work distinct from the black and white images for which he is known. Through means of darkroom experimentation, Yokota layers sheets of unused large format color film and applies unorthodox developing methods before scanning the results. The mixing and manipulation of the film's chemicals produces vibrant and liquescent compositions that create forms reminiscent of fractal geometry and telescope images of the cosmos. Published in conjunction with Yokota's first solo show in the United States at Harper's Books, East Hampton, September 26 - December 1, 2015.
