Hiroshi Takizawa has not set out in search of beauty; he gets his kick from studying materials. Having studied psychology, Takizawa turned his hand to photography, with a particular predilection for still life.

Takizawa enjoys playing with his materials. He photographs compositions, prints them, rephotographs them, and recomposes them. Through his images and installations, the Japanese photographer also plays with perspective in order that the spectator might lose themself in the scholarly superposition of stills. Takizawa calls into question the role of photography itself. While some might try and fix life through photos, he renders life more animated.
