CORPUS by Daisuke Yokota

72 Pages, 34.5 × 25.5 cm, Paperback, Edition of 1,000

More than forty engrossing images make up this series of grainy, black-and-white photographs by Daisuke Yokota, the first to feature his nude photography. Through a visual expression that mixes reality and fiction, an indecipherable tangle of human limbs and torsos is made eerily yet sensually tangible within the close quarters of a nondescript bedroom space. Deep shadows threaten to engulf the writhing, fleshy bodies of what seem to be a man and a woman, even as the suggested intimacy of their interaction is negated by the extreme proximity in which Yokota places the viewer.
