Exhibiton of three young photographers called "Box of Niepce/right" and "Box of Niepce/left". The exhibiton will be by two composition.
There is a theory that Nicephore Niepce, one of the inventors of photography and a pioneer in the field, dreamed the following tings the principle of the photograph.
The act of pressing shutter is exactly same as the act of capturing. Photographers have been confine and fix various things like remembrance, air and light. If the things they can capture was something like spirits, how wonderful and romantic it is. To prove Niepce's idea of the photograph as machine of capturing the spirits, CASHI gallery will show the photographs which confined power that shakes the viewers, as the exhibiton of two composition. These two composition are made by same artists but we will try to show different surface of each artists like A side and B side of a record. Artist: Keita Sugiura, Tetsuomi Sukeda, Tomoe Murakami * The text provided by CASHI.

The word “Niepce” included in the title is part of the name, Nicephore Niepce (1765-1833), one of the inventors of photography. As shown in a legend that our souls are removed from our bodies if we have our pictures taken, or in a genre (?) of a spirit photo, photography is often regarded as a machine to be used for capturing not only visible things but spirits which cannot be seen in this world. Personally, I also believe such an aspect of photography. This exhibition is said to be held with the aim of “verifying” exactly that “photography is a machine to be used for capturing spirits” through exhibits which were created by three young photographers, Keita Sugiura, Tetsuomi Sukeda and Tomoe Murakami. It is composed of two shows entitled “Box of Niepce/right” and “Box of Niepce/left” and the exhibits are interchanged in the venue during the period of about three weeks. Therefore, I would like to discuss whether the exhibition deserves to be valued or not after viewing all the exhibits by visiting at least once in each show. (Translated by Nozomi Nakayama)
