'My first time to look at the crowd of the metropolis, there seemed to be one giant object moving.’, the artist told. After the encounter, he continues to observe it. Then he decides to divide the mass to each human. The reconstruction of the city scenes is for regaining the human right, Tanii thinks his work as that. Influenced by western paintings like Bosch, Bruegel, Poussin, and the other classics, and Balthus, His photographs have their flavor of liberty which is lost in today. In the wonderland of the end of Asia, his renaissance of people connects the trilogy, Extra, Monomi-Yusan and Utopia. The exhibition shows the trilogy and the newest book of them.
