Daisuke Yokota is one of the most renowned representatives of Japan's latest generation of photographers. He uses a full arsenal of techniques to create his works, rephotographing, photocopying, layering, and at times subjecting his images to intense temperatures and other means of degradation to purposefully bring out their flaws. The results are haunting, with subjects that evoke lost times and places underneath smooth, almost gelatinous surfaces. This image comes from his "Site" series, which has brought him extensive attention in both Japan and Europe.
