Naoki Ishikawa

Naoki Ishikawa

Naoki Ishikawa, fotografo, alpinista, esploratore, nelle sue fotografie cattura lo
splendore naturale degli ambienti più estremi del pianeta. Alpinista di fama mondiale, ha scalato cinque ottomila e molte altre montagne. Più che un documento dei suoi viaggi, le sue immagini mostrano una ricerca che si ispira al suo dottorato in antropologia. “Per me, la parte più importante del viaggio è andare in luoghi che la maggior parte delle altre persone non ha mai visitato e vedere le cose con i miei occhi, sentire le cose con le mie orecchie, e sperimentarle con il mio corpo”, ha detto l’artista. Più che un semplice rendering della natura, le sue fotografie catturano il rapporto tra le persone e gli spazi che abitano.
