Overview participating exhibitions
Terra Cognita - Untamed
One of the central events each spring in Japan is hanami, the brief period when the cherry trees blossom. Katsumi Omori has captured that event for the last decade. It was obvious that in the spring of 2011, after the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear incident, he would go from Tokyo in the direction of the disaster-struck Fukushima in search of the blossoms. His images contain suggestions of things that people can not see, but which ares nonetheless present: anxiety, radiation and hope for the future.
Katsumi Omori (Japan, 1963) has published many photo books, including Salsa Gum Tape (1998), Encounter (2005), Incarnation (2010) and Bonjour (2010). In 1994 jury members Robert Frank and Kotaro Iizawa honoured him with the Excellence Award in the New Cosmos of Photography.
