About Mamoru Tsukada

Mamoru Tsukada is a photographer best known for his images of the blind. Tsukada explains his choice of subject: “Blind people create connections and distance between the objects in their surroundings by moving their two hands. That makes an imaginary dimension.” Because of this project, a documentary crew began to film Tsukada, and they in turn became subjects in the artist’s works. Ongoing themes in his work include dividing lines and boundaries, the role of images in memory and unconsciousness, and art history. Between 1995 and 2005, Tsukada was a portrait photographer for Forbes, Business Week, and Time Magazine.
