Kiyohiro Tsushima - JCAT




  • Kiyohiro Tsushima
    Sky photographer in Tokyo, born in 1983 in Aomori Prefecture.
    Tsushima got into photography at the age of 23 when a friend complimented him on a casual photo he took of some blossoms during a cherry blossom viewing. His interest was roused, he immediately purchased a used camera and later started working as a photographer. He took photos of the sky then too, but had more fun taking shots of women at the time. In 2012 he quit his photography job, declaring that he would “only take photos of the sky from now on,” and started his current occupation that offers more free time.

    Tsushima finds sunny, cloudless skies boring to look at, but loves seeing clouds floating against the sky masked white with a layer of wispy clouds. He chooses to black out all non-sky elements such as buildings in his photographs, and his work is characterized by their depiction of highly saturated skies with clouds.

    Initially exhibiting at galleries and cafés, Tsushima also started selling his work from 2014 at art events in Tokyo, Yokohama, Shanghai, and Switzerland, as well as directly through his shows. Tsushima originally did group shows with some artist friends, but his pace gradually diverged from the other members and he went primarily solo from 2015.

  • 対馬健太(つしまきよひろ)1983年-青森県生まれ、東京で空の写真家。 写真に興味をもったキッカケは、23歳の時に友達と行った花見でなんとなく撮った桜の写真を友達に褒めら れたから。 それから写真を撮る事に興味をもってしまい、すぐに中古カメラを買いその後カメラマンになった。 その頃から空も撮っていたが当時は女性を撮る方が楽しかった。 2012年に「空だけを撮っていきます!」とカメラマンを辞め時間に余裕のある仕事を始め現在に至る。 雲一つない晴天はつまらなくてまったく興味がなくなかなか見れないが、薄い雲が空いっぱいに広がって白 くなった空に雲が浮いているのが好き。 作風としてすべての写真の建物など空以外は黒く塗りつぶしている。そして彩度の高い空の色と雲がある事 が特徴的である。 ギャラリーやカフェでの展示中心だったが、2014年から展示中や、都内・横浜・上海・スイスのアートイベ ントなどで販売もするようなっていった。 以前は仲間たちとグループ展をしていたが、徐々に他のメンバーとのペースが合わなくなってきたため2015 年から個人での活動をメインにしている。
