I can't draw a painting
by 北岡稔章

Following his previous work ``Equally, Beautiful'', this time he also uses a macro lens to make the subject blurry, but this time he uses a macro lens to capture the image of the subject in a blurry manner. Taking Kitaoka's episode as a starting point, I created photographs that are ambiguous as to whether they are photographs or paintings. The out-of-focus smears have the power of paint and are reminiscent of impressionist paintings. Furthermore, by intentionally making the subject unclear, it seems as if he is leaving the viewer's imagination in charge.

Is this a photo or a painting? What exactly is in the picture?

Kitaoka says that what's more important than finding the right answer is "imagining what you want to see.'' In other words, it means focusing on yourself.


Born in Kochi Prefecture in 1986. After studying architecture in Osaka, he entered Visual Arts Osaka College of Photography. After he graduated he joined Studio Ebisu. After leaving the company, he became independent in 2015. His photo book “Equally, beautiful” was published in 2020.
