Osamu Yokonami’s images are set on a farm in rural Japan, outside Higashikawa, Hokkaido. Working from direct angles, Yokonami transforms ordinary bodies, agricultural implements and local products into disturbing, unexpectedly absurd and yet familiar representations. Images such as headless figures, a face disguised as an aubergine, a child wrapped in a paper bag, a character kneeling on the grass while balancing two large tomatoes on his back suggest a performative moment, of complicity between the photographer and the people portrayed.
